Artek Mademoiselle Rocking Chair
The Rocking Chair Mademoiselle by Artek is an elegant design classic in the tradition of Finnish furniture design. The Artek Mademoiselle Rocking Chair was designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara: "According to its name, Mademoiselle explains the filigree and elegant design of the Rocking Chair. The reduced design consists of slim and long forms that communicate appealingly."
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.
