Artek started making a big push to reintroduce folks to these classic Alvar Aalto designs two years ago in Milan and it is paying off. I saw them in white at Narcissa in the new Standard Hotel in NYC a few weeks ago, and here they are in black in a modern farmhouse. Recognizable but not too familiar, their straight edge silhouette contrasts with their curved interior to give them a very fresh, NOW feeling. I like.
