Hugo Alvar Henrik Aalto (1898-1976) was a Finnish architect and designer. His work includes architecture, furniture, textiles, and glassware. It was characteristic of Aalto to treat each building as a complete work of art, right down to the furniture and light fittings. In 1935, Artek was founded by Alvar Aalto and his wife Aino Aalto to promote the growing production and sales of Aalto furniture. The design of his furniture combined practicality and aesthetics with series production, following the main Artek idea of encouraging a more beautiful everyday life in the home.
