One of the many lasting legacies of the great Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto, Artek modern furniture and lighting has been a respected and enduring presence on the modern design landscape since 1935. Boasting a catalog of gracefully innovative modern furniture designs defined by durability, sustainability, and material warmth, the Artek collection of modern chairs, tables, storage pieces and lighting models has become synonymous with the 'humanistic' brand of modernism to which Alvar Aalto was committed.
