Artek Rival Chair KG001
The Rival Chair KG001 by Artek is a low backrest task chair with textile or leather upholstery options. The KG001 Rival Chair was designed by Konstantin Grcic in collaboration with Artek: "Rival. The name has a positive connotation. Rival goes out into the world to stand firmly in its own belief, as a chair, as a counterpart, as a tool for living/working."
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.
