Artek | abc Collection


At Maison & Objet in January 2015, Artek presented small furniture, lighting, and products from the abc collection. Referring to the alphabet of living, the abc collection comprises textiles, stationery and small objects that complement Artek’s furniture collection. Beautiful and functional, these objects bring joy to everyday life.

The H55 textile pattern, designed by Elissa Aalto, is introduced in a new colour. Architect Elissa Aalto was working as an assistant in Alvar Aalto’s office in 1955 when she was invited to design the Finnish housing section of the Helsingborg Exhibition in Sweden. One detail featured in the apartment was the H55 fabric, which is now introduced in a white/red version.

From the archives, Artek also reintroduces Alvar Aalto’s Wall Drawer 114B. This charming and popular multipurpose piece of furniture has been used in a variety of ways since its introduction in 1936, for example, as a telephone table or a nightstand. From the same series of domestic helpers, the Coat Rack 109C and Mirror 192A and 192B will also be reintroduced. 

Other products include Alvar Aalto’s classic Stool 60 from 1933, in a newly interpreted version by Dutch designer Hella Jongerius. In 2014 Jongerius revisited the model, adding a new colour concept and stained wood to the icon.
