Our current sales are so big, it’s hard to keep track. Don’t let any pieces you’ve been saving up for slip through the cracks. Artek is an modern furnishing brand established by the legendary husband and wife team of Alvar and Aino Aalto, along with art promoter Maire Gullichsen and art historian Nils-Gustav Hahl in 1935. They were way ahead of their time, leading the design pack and creating beautiful modern pieces destined to become icons. Here are some of the modern icons by Artek, currently 15% off at Design Public.
Artek 60 Stool. Designed in 1933 by the great architect and home furnishings designer Alvar Aalto, this simple stool is a very early example of functional modernism. It’s look is timeless, and it’s also available in the E60 version which has lacquer and linoleum colored top options.
