Artek Karuselli Lounge Chair
The Lounge Chair Karuselli by Artek is one of the most famous lounge chairs in the world. The shape of the Karuselli chair is the result of extensive experimentation. The Karuselli Lounge Chair was designed in 1964 by Yrjö Kukkapuro: "It was this combination of qualities that made Karuselli a revolutionary chair in its time. Ever since its first launch, Karuselli has caught the eye, captured the imagination and has given pleasure to those sitting in it."

About Artek
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.
