Alvar Aalto began designing furnishings as early as the 1920's. They were a natural and important extension of his architectural thinking. To Aalto, a piece of furniture was not simply an isolated object in space. He was a comprehensive artist in the architectural and design fields who focused his attention on even the smallest of details.
Artek was established in 1935 to market his furniture, lamps and fabrics. A long tradition as a manufacturer of outstanding articles for daily use has made Artek an internationally known and recognized quality design brand.
Aalto's beautiful and functional furniture is still very popular around the world in spite of changing styles.
Artek, headquartered in Finland, 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 comprehensive furniture system is based on the original idea of standards and systems, which has its origin from Alvar Aalto's L-system. The standard and system thinking makes the furniture range versatile and allows it to be customised for individual projects. Artek's furniture can be found in various types of spaces; from public spaces to homes, museums to schools and hotels to offices.
classic, elegant light fixture
I ordered this light fixture sight unseen (at least in person) and was pleasantly pleased with my purchase. It is hung above our bathroom vanity and puts off just the right amount of light. The canopy could use some work in terms of quality and took our electrician quite some time to figure out how to get the canopy to stay flush to the ceiling. Overall I am extremely pleased with the aesthetic of our fixture and would recommend it.
