Since the foundation of Artek – one of our partners for abc 2013 – in 1935, some 8 million Alvar Aalto stools have been sold worldwide. A few years ago Artek started to collect old Aalto furniture from flea markets, schools, elderly people’s homes and garages. Artek wanted to give these classic pieces of design a new lease on life, an original opportunity to tell their story. They are called the 2nd Cycle. They will be present throughout the restaurant and cafe at abc. Come sit at a piece of history.
