Artek 2nd Cycle and Vintage

11 March 2013

Alvar Aalto once said “everything that has ever been emerges in a new form.” No sooner said than done. Artek, the company he and his wife Aino set up in 1935 (with Maire Gullichsen and Nils-Gustav Hahl), has taken its founder at his word and has launched Artek 2nd Cycle and Vintage, which collects used products of the Finnish brand and puts them up for sale on its website. Well done.

She has been writing about furniture for twenty years and is still not tired of it, in spite of everything. She has no free time, and is not even interested in it. For her it’s enough not to have to go to the same office everyday. She mixes with unlikely people, and contributes to Klat for this very reason.
