The core of Avarte’s collection are the classics designed by the company’s principal designer, Yrjo Kukkapuro in the 1960’s, for example Karuselli, Remmi, Ateljee and Funktus chairs. One of Kukkapuro’s favourite sayings, “Does it make any sense to design a chair which is not good to sit on.” describes Avarte’s love for ergonomic furniture. Kukkapuro has also states that a designer should be an artist, a doctor and an engineer in the same time. Kukkapuro’s timeless pieces are displayed for example in New York MoMA’s and London Victoria and Albert Museum’s permanent collections. Today, Avarte collaborates also with other leading designers like Mikko Paakkanen, the designer of the much praised Nietos-chair, who was nominated as the Young Designer of the year 2006.
Our culture: humanistic, Open, Innovative, down-to-earth.
Our vision: To foster culture in the products and sell products based on the culture, to provide the unique surroundings and to become the most popular furniture brand.
AVARTE has participated in many interior design projects worldwide. We have supplied furniture to several projects designed by famous architects, such as cultural centres, city halls, offices of many international corporations, universities and other institutes, banks and hospitals.
For example the following museums have taken furniture designed by Yrj? Kukkapuro for AVARTE to their permanent collections: New York: Museum of Modern Art, London: Victoria and Albert Museum, Hamburg: Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Weil am Rhein: Vitra Design Museum, Copenhagen, Gothenburg and Helsinki museums of industrial art, and the National Museum in Stockholm.
Rational use of materials and timeless design combined with the high quality, durability and long lifespan of furniture is the most essential factor for our environment. A piece of furniture stresses the environment at the most when it is taken to the dump. AVARTE furniture are made for long term use and their lifespan is prolonged by the availability of replacement parts, which are easy to change.
