Artek - Art and Technology
Founded in 1945 by four Finnish idealists, Artek embodies Bauhaus ideals of functionality and simplicity in their product design. Artek have a consistent presence at Venice Art Biennales and Milan Salones but I'm most interested in Italian designer Enzo Mari's 1974 DIY chair that they mass produced.
The Pendant Lamp is on a wish list.
