Artek teamed up with design studio Formafantasma and as a result of their collaboration a new wood selection – wild birch – is introduced. In wild birch the natural marks of wood such as darker core wood, knots and trails left by insects are visible allowing more of the tree to be used to produce Artek’s long-lasting products. Stool 60 Villi, made of wild birch, is launched at Artek Helsinki store on 7th of September, 2023. Together with Stool 60 Villi Artek also presents a limited edition of stools created in collaboration with Formafantasma: Core, Knot, Trail and Bark each highlighting the wood feature after which it is named. In 2023 Artek celebrates the 90 years of Stool 60.
