The new HK 002 lounge chair is the latest addition to the HK family. An upholstered version of the lounge chair is also available. In 2009 the series was complemented with a table and an upholstered chair. The Artek HK002 Lounge chair was designed by Harri Koskinen: He searches for clarity and innovative solutions that meet the needs of the consumer and the manufacturer alike. HK collection is a graphic product family, but also pleasantly anonymous. It is equally suited for public places and private homes.
Artek was founded in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. The business strategy of the company was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means”. The founders of Artek advocated a new kind of environment for everyday life. They believed in a grand synthesis of the arts and wanted to make a difference in architecture and design as well as in town planning.
