One of the greatest names in 20th century furniture design, Artek was founded in December 1935 by architect Alvar Aalto and his wife Aino Aalto, visual arts promoter Maire Gullichsen and art historian Nils-Gustav Hahl. The original aim of Artek was to combine art and technology into design. This echoed a main idea of the International Style movement, especially the Bauhaus, to emphasize the technical expertise in production and quality of materials, instead of historical-based, eclectic or frivolous ornamentation. Stardust is the best source for Artek furniture and lighting featuring best sellers like the such as the Paimio Chair, Aalto's E60 Stool and the Aalto A 331 Beehive Lamp. The leading name in modern Finnish furniture and lighting design, Artek has been the pre-eminent symbol of tasteful Scandinavian design and style for over half a century. Artek is one of the leading Scandinavian design companies specializing in modern furniture, modern lighting and modern home accessories. The modern design collection by Artek contains a vast array of classic design icons created by designers of international fame including Alvar Aalto and lately Ben af Schulten. The Alvar Aalto collection is included in the permanent design collection of MoMA New York.
