Alvar Aalto

Following Vitra's acquisition of Artek last year, this exhibition was somewhat inevitable. Aalto founded Artek with his wife Aino in 1935 to "sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of habitation". The Vitra Design Museum will deliver insights into Aalto's work, presenting key buildings, furniture and lighting designs and exploring the inspirations that shaped them. The exhibition will also focus on his relationships with artists such as Alexander Calder and László Moholy-Nagy as well as his constant concern for the human factor in design.
