Hello I Lobo You friends! Here I am in New York, feeling like Alicia Keys at her Empire State of Mind. I already feel that there is nothing you can’t do, and that these streets will make me feel brand new, while big lights will inspire me!
From 19th to 22nd of May, ICFF will be an epicentre of tendences and decor ideas, that will gathered the best architects and interior designers from the world. I have crossed the ocean to attend the New York Design Week and get inspired by all the best design brands in the world. Artek is one of them. This Finnish brand will introduce new collections from Ilmari Tapiovaara and Harri Koskinen as well as a new lamp from Tapio Wirkkala at ICFF (Booth #1804). Can’t wait to see them live!
Artek is headquartered in Finland and is owned by the privately held investment company Proventus AB, based in Sweden. Artek has four stores in Finland; in Helsinki, in Espoo and in Turku, as well as a museum shop in connection to the Alvar Aalto Museum in Jyväskylä. Artek also has a show-room in Stockholm and in New York City. While valuing traditions Artek has at the same time entered a new era. Combining the ideology of the radical founders and a contemporary and dynamic approach to product development, the company is more art and tech than ever.
