Celebrating 75 years of timeless design across the world.
May 5th, 2010
Artek was founded in Finland back in 1935 by four young idealists – architect Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen and Nils-Gustav Hahl.
Artek’s original values – long-term durability and high quality combined with a clean form language – are still the company’s driving forces.
Recent collaborations between designers as Naoto Fukasawa, Enzo Mari and Italian fashion house Missoni have maintained Artek’s longstanding reputation in the contemporary design world, without compromising their restrained elegance and timeless aesthetic.
In celebration of Artek’s 75th birthday, classic pieces will be showing at Australian Print Workshop – including the Artek Paimio chair, Artek 43 chaise lounge (only once before seen in Australia), Artek 400 chair, Artek 406 chair and Artek 60 stools.
Also on display, historic Artek images will be exhibited coinciding with the launch of a lithographic print by artist Kevin Lincoln.
The exhibition will run from the 18 to the 26 May 2010 at the Australian Print Workshop, will a special opening night on Thursday 20 May. (To RSVP email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Classic Artek furniture will also be on display in Anibou’s Melbourne showrooms.
