Artek was founded in 1935 by four young idealists, Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen and Nils-Gustav Hahl.
The business idea of the company was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of habitation by exhibitions and other educational means.” Today Artek is renowned as being one of the most innovative contributors to modern design, building on the heritage of Alvar Aalto. Functionality and timeless aesthetics are the essential elements in the creation of every product that bears the Artek name. Artek’s furniture can be found in various types of spaces; from public spaces to homes, museums to schools and hotels to offices.
