Video: Artek, Designer Profile

To celebrate its 75th anniversary, Finnish design company Artek showcases its latest lighting project, “White,” devised by the company’s design director Ville Kokkonen. Since forming in 1935 by husband and wife team Aino and Alvar Aalto – the father of modern Scandinavian design – the company has stayed true to its original values of producing modern furniture that is humane and inspired by nature. Here, Kokkonen talks us through Artek’s collaboration with Comme des Garçons and tells us why their new Bright Light is actually good for your health.
