Kaari shelf with desk

By Artek


  • Description

    Artek presents Kaari, the first collaboration between Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and the Finnish design company. Based on a simple, yet intelligent component, the Kaari Collection comprises rectangular and round tables in two sizes as well as a desk, a wall console, a small round shelf and larger shelves.
    Besides rectangular and round tables in two sizes each, the Kaari Collection includes a desk, a wall console, a small round shelf and an assortment of large wall-mounted shelf units. In addition to the material, the system concept is also prevalent in the history of Artek. Similar to the way Aalto used the L-leg to support a variety of tables, chairs, stools and containers, the Bouroullecs combine solid wood with steel banding to create a column base for small round tables, symmetrical wing-shaped legs for large rectangular tables and legs with a single wing- shaped support on one side for desks. The same principle is also applied to wall-mounted tables and shelves. Despite this affinity with the Artek tradition, however, Kaari has found an aesthetic of its own, making it distinguishable from classic Artek designs.

    Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, born 1971 and 1976, respectively, in Quimper, France, studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. Ronan began independent design work immediately after completing his studies, while his brother, who was still in school, assisted him.

In addition to the design of domestic and office furniture, vases, porcelain dishware, jewellery and diverse home accessories, a primary focus of their work is the design and organization of interior space.
