Artek Tables

Atek was founded in 1935 by Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen and Nils-Gustav Hahl. To this day, Artek continue to work with famous international architects, artists and designers who work together to combine art and technology.

Alvar Arto in particular had a concept for versatile furniture and this is displayed in Artek tables which work in both the private and public sphere.  Artek tables are made semi-industrially with a high proportion of work completed by hand.

The Artek 91 dining table is made from Finnish birch which is environmentally friendly, practical and adds a warm ambience to your home. This Artek functionalist dining table can also services many needs, whether used as a dining table or for meetings in a business setting.

The legs’ unique bends were so successful on the Artek table that eventually they became the distinctive feature on many Aalto pieces of furniture, with the unique Artek leg design patented in 1933.

These Artek table legs solved the problem of attaching vertical legs to a horizontal top. Before this revolutionary design, holes were cut into the table top to insert the legs or a frame was used to attach the legs to the underside of the table. The curved L-leg could be attached with screws, meaning the previously unsightly joinery was now not needed.

This signature L-leg design is seen again in Artek 80B table. The L-leg is solid wood yet has a laminated part bend at 90°. Minimal and contemporary, this rectangular table is a classical piece that you won’t forget.

The Artek 90A table is a circular birch framed table and its minimalist expression and quiet silhouette will allow it to fit into any setting. Designed in 1935, it still looks modern today. This Artek table is perfect for communal dining.
