Artek is the new unity of Art and Technology, in their wishes to sell furniture and to polygraph modern living by exhibitions and other educational occasions.
"The furniture made should last at least as long as how much lifetime it took to grow." Story began in 1935 and their first store in Helsinki a year later. 4 idealists Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl made it up with modern art, industry & interior design in terms of clarity, functionality, and poetic simplicity.
In the era of globalisation, it’s difficult to find a manufacturer like A-factory in Turku specialised in wood making who kept the original form of Aalto’s designs from vision to hand-made material versions since the 1920s.
