About

Kaari" is the Finnish word for "arch". When designing the Kaari Collection, the French brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec researched Artek’s history and created a component-based system that references the iconic L-shaped leg component, patented by Alvar Aalto in 1933. Paris-based brothers Ronan (born 1971) and Erwan (born 1976) Bouroullec form one of the most exciting design teams working today and have collaborated with numerous leading companies in the design field. Their oeuvre ranges from furniture and product design, textile wall systems and comprehensive collections to large-scale installations, architecture, and experimental projects. Sketching, model-making, and photography are the three main tools used by the Bouroullec brothers in their often time-consuming design process. Both brothers are constantly drawing, filling the pages of sketchbooks. In their notebooks, their fears, doubts, and sense of humour take shape in fantastical creatures, details from nature, and pages and pages filled with abstract forms. Their award-winning work forms part of the permanent collections of museums such as the Musée National d’Art Moderne, the Centre Pompidou, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the MoMA in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Design Museum in London.

About The Maker

Artek was founded in Helsinki in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. Their goal was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means.” The name Artek is a synthesis of "art" and ‘technology’ – concepts central to the international modernist movement that came to prominence in the 1920s. It was Walter Gropius, a key proponent of modernism, who coined the motto ‘art and technology – a new unity.’ Technology was understood to include science and industrial production methods, while the conception of art extended beyond the fine arts to encompass architecture and design. Modernism aimed to achieve a fruitful union of these two spheres. This same aspiration guided the founders of Artek in their naming of the company. In keeping with the radical spirit of its founders, Artek today remains an innovative player in the world of modern design, developing new products at the intersection of design, architecture, and art. The Artek collection consists of furniture, lighting, and accessories designed by Finnish masters and leading international designers. It stands for clarity, functionality, and poetic simplicity.
