Artek's 2nd Cycle market opens in Berlin

Artek 2nd cycle

Nokia for example take back some of their phones and refurbish and re-sell the products do they not? Later on I bumped into the following interview excerpt of Mirkku Kullberg, former managing Director of Artek, on Northern Delights. The products on sale include items by such classic designers as Alvar Aalto, Ilmari Tapiovaara, Yrjö Kukkapuro, Arne Jakobsen, Charles and Ray Eames, not only furniture but also lamps, carpets, ceramics, tableware and fine art prints. As Lemmetti points out, Finns often repaint several times over that most popular of Artek items — the 60 stool of 1932 to 1933 — in the latest trendy hues, thereby extending its life cycle. Ja niin näitä huonekaluja on viety maailmalle. Would I be wrong in suspecting the furniture company as trying to muscle in on second-hand retail? Lemmetti began dealing in vintage furniture in the 1980s.

Artek 2nd cycle

In 2007, the word 'sustainability' was quite new, while the whole design scene was dancing tango with fashion — fast and furious. With his simple yet curvilinear furniture, the 20th-century Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto famously changed the course of design history, giving modernism a gentler, more human face. Tämä kauppa, Artek 2nd Cycle, on kaikkien nähtävä, jos on lainkaan kiinnostunut design-huonekaluista. Your personal details will not be shared with those companies - we send the emails and you can unsubscribe at any time. Mutta lähellekin on ollut kysyntää. Se toimii kohtauspaikkana keräilijöille, asiakkaille ja muotoilijoille kutsuen ihailemaan ja hankkimaan kauniisti patinoituneita huonekaluja, tekemään harvinaisia löytöjä ja kuulemaan Artekin asiantuntijoita.

At our recent , we were thrilled to see such amazing work and general interest in the integration of reused and recycled materials in the design process. Huomioithan, että myymälän tuotteet vaihtuvat jatkuvasti ja niissä on yksilökohtaisia hintaeroja. Myöhemmin törmäsin Artekin entisen toimitusjohtajan Mirkku Kullbergin haastatteluun Delights. Artek 2nd Cycle is proof of conviction.

Artek had been blamed often for showing the 'old' Aalto icons and nothing new. The more I think about this, the more problematic it is. The design, the beauty, and the quality stand for time. In addition, visitors to the event will also be encouraged to bring along their own pieces of used Finnish furniture for experts to evaluate, authenticate and then potentially buy back in return for a store gift certificate.

Artek 2nd Cycle Helsinki

Artek 2nd cycle

June 14, 2007 at 2:55 pm While I love the idea of keeping these chairs and stools out of landfills, I would much rather see artek take these pieces and create new designs with the disassembled components. Running until tomorrow, the market will provide Berlin-based Finnish design fanatics with the chance to get their hands on the coveted pre-loved pieces, including mid-century classics by designers such as Ilmari Tapiovaara and Alvar Aalto. I don't think this would be Artek's fault, but unless people aren't careful, this could end up like those ridiculous pre-torn and -dirtied jeans; people buying something new that's made to look well-used and old, all to pass off as more authentic. However in the case of , the hope is quite the opposite. Kuvassa etualalla Alvar Aallon 402-nojatuoli ja taustalla mm. I love second- and third-hand furniture too, but that Artek collects these pieces themselves and then re-sells it as their own line is transparently gimmicky, and frankly, even decadent.

Artek 2nd Cycle Helsinki

Artek 2nd cycle

Artek's 2nd Cycle was one of my first topics as a blogging novice five years ago — I would never give up my secondhand Artek! But sometimes these buildings are changed or people move on, so why not give these products a second life? Kaupungin ehdottomasti trendikkäin käytettyjen design-sisustustavaroiden myymälä sijaitsee Pieni Roobertinkadulla Helsingin Kaartinkaupungissa. The very fact that he inhabited this house for over 40 years speaks volumes about the philosophy that informed his attitude towards life and design. Hankkimamme pitkänhuiskea vintageyksilö on valmistettu 60-luvulla. Never one for indulgence or over-embellishment, The Aalto House was constructed around ideas of comfortable functionality that would last for years. The main idea behind 2nd Cycle is to talk about longevity and durability — the main factors when talking about sustainability.

Artek 2nd cycle

This gives people wider perspectives. In 2011, Artek celebrated its 76th anniversary by opening the Artek 2nd Cycle store in the heart of Helsinki. Osa tuotteista on hinnoiltaan todella suolaisia, niin suolaisia, että saattaa ihan harmittaa. Jill, I know this sounds like splitting hairs, but since you advocate 2nd Cycle as representationally significant, then I feel I must argue along the same lines. Kuka muistaa kenen suunnittelemat ne ovat? A meeting point connecting collectors, customers, and designers, the store invites visitors to browse, buy a beautifully aged piece of furniture, discover a rarity, or simply learn more from Artek experts. It also might be prudent to point out that the company Artek is about producing old Alvar Aalto furniture and selling it to the current market and so reselling old Aalto's designs fits in perfectly with their marketing and rhetoric. Mutta se ei myöskään täydellisesti katoa.
