Show #11 -ARTEK 'Art & Technology'
June 8th to September 24th 2016
Not many furniture or lighting firms can say they have been producing their designs since the 1930’s, as is the case with the Finnish brand Artek.
It’s amazing that the revolutionary designs Alvar Aalto created in those early years are still in production today, and are surrounded now by important works of historical masters Ilmari Tapiovaara, Tapio Wirkkala, Eero Aarnio and Yrjö Kukkapuro.
But it doesn’t stop there, in the spirit of its founders, contemporary designers like Konstantin Grcic and Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec are stil creating new pieces with that pure mix of Art & Technology, the essence of Artek.
With great pride we present to you this exhibition which has been created by Artek to help shine more light on their creative craftsmanship.
