Artek was founded in 1935 by 4 forward thinking modernists. The companies foundation was built on the idea of - "selling furniture and to promote modern culture of habitation by exhibitions and other means." The founders of Artek advocated a new kind of environment for everyday life. Their designs look so recognisable now but at the time were revolutionary. A favourite of ours is the simple 60 Stool and the A330S Pendant Light.
