Artek’s Drawing Studio was the creative focus of the company for many years. Ever since Aino Aalto’s time, it remained an integral part of the company, being the place where new designs were created and Artek’s exhibitions were planned.
Artek Studio is the natural continuum to the Drawing studio, the place where Artek’s new products arise and product development takes place. Artek is continuously on the search for new, interesting and sustainable materials.
During Alvar Aalto’s time, a large part of the furniture was planned for various architectural spaces. The designs were characterized by a strong system and standard thinking that is still prevailing in the design process and philosophy of today.
Ville Kokkonen is Artek´s Design Director.
