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_stool_60_birch.jpgArtek 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.


Artek Siena Trays. If you have a lot of design-loving friends, I highly recommend stocking up on a few of these to use as gifts for them. This purchase will be a great bang for your buck.


Artek A330S Golden Bell Lamp. Bring a shiny piece of the fabulous Savoy Restaurant (Helsinki) to your home. Originally designed for the establishment in the 1930s, its elegant form is timeless.


Artek A110 Pendant. If a simpler style and finish is more your bag, try the cylindrical lines of the A110 Pendant. Available in black or white, it has just a hint of bling at the rim that helps bounce the light around.

Artek_69_Chair_birch.jpgArtek Chair 69. A straightforward birch piece, this chair is great for modern dining rooms, farmhouse kitchens or colorful playrooms alike.

Hey Everyone, Just wanted to let you know that if you’ve been considering purchasing from Pablo, Kartell or Vitra, today is the day to pull the trigger. The sale ends at midnight.

Warning: The following items and savings may tempt you ….

The Vitra New Panton Chair, down to $263.50 from $310. This contemporary classic adds a sleek touch to an eclectic mix, fits in seamlessly with super-modern rooms and slides its way right under a rustic reclaimed wood dining table. It’s glam at a dressing table and perks up a desk.

The Kartell Bubble Club Armchair slashed down to $612 from $720. These bring the library/family room club chair silhouette to an unexpected place — outdoors! Remember how James Spader and William Shatner used to sit in these and have a cigar at the end of Boston Legal every week?

The Pablo Lim 360 Task Lamp down to $255 from $300. I love this lamp because it’s very futuristic looking and sleek, yet the charm of the base gives it a touch of that retro ’70s paneling appeal. The balance between the pieces is pleasing and playful.

Speaking of playful, George Nelson’s iconic mid-century modern clocks are on sale too; this Ball Clock is down to $331.50 from $390. These are functional works of art you’ll not only treasure for life, but pass down as a prized possession.

Renzo Piano’s Minimalist Cabin


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

The Vitra campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany is unlike any other – you probably recognize VitraHaus by Herzog & de Meuron:

The latest addition to its architecture collection is Diogene, a minimalist cabin designed by Renzo Piano and The Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW). The house represents a unique partnership between the architect and the furniture company, and makes you wonder just how few square feet you could get by living in.

While known for so many large iconic projects, tiny houses have always been a big interest of Piano’s. The planning of the Diogene, which has a footprint of just 2.4 meters by 2.4 meters, was ten years in the making. When Vitra caught wind of the fact that he needed a partner, they made a big but logical from furniture into the minimalist house market.

While they still play with the idea of if and how to put the very functional little house into production, the prototype sits nestled in the grass on Vitra’s campus. The house collects its own water and supplies its own electricity – you could go completely off the grid in this small home, which has Photovoltaic cells and solar modules, a rainwater tank, a biological toilet, natural ventilation and triple-glazed windows.

The large openings on the roof and the large window open it up, let in the light and make it feel a lot larger than a few dozen square feet, making such small-space living not only tolerable, but comfortable. The sofa folds out into a bed, and there is a tiny bathroom and kitchen inside. The little house can serve as a Thoreau-like retreat, a studio, a guest house or a place to get some solitude and peace just outside of a busy household. It could also be used as emergency housing after natural disasters. I can only hope it’s something we can sell someday!
