Limited Edition Alvar Aalto Tea Trolley 900 in Orbit by Artek + Heath

About

Experimental glazes from the 1940s meet innovative wood-bending techniques from the 1930s for a distinctive, memorable collection. As an edition of six designs with only six of each made, the iconic Artek Tea Trolley is inlaid with tile inspired by Heath Clay Studio glaze experiments and installations found in the historic Sausalito factory. The Maze and Orbit tile tops are created by placing tiles on a spinning wheel. Glaze is applied with a squeeze bottle, creating concentric lines. This results in two styles: one more graphic and precise, and the other intentionally blurred. Dimensions: 35.5” L x 25.6” W x 23.6” H. Materials: Form-bent solid birch lamella, MDF, rattan, ceramic tiles. This trolley is #2 of an edition of 6.

Additional Options

Please inquire about custom tile commissions inspired by the tile on the Tea Trolley 900 collaboration.

About The Maker

Artek was founded in Helsinki in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. Their goal was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means.” The name Artek is a synthesis of "art" and ‘technology’ – concepts central to the international modernist movement that came to prominence in the 1920s. It was Walter Gropius, a key proponent of modernism, who coined the motto ‘art and technology – a new unity.’ Technology was understood to include science and industrial production methods, while the conception of art extended beyond the fine arts to encompass architecture and design. Modernism aimed to achieve a fruitful union of these two spheres. This same aspiration guided the founders of Artek in their naming of the company. In keeping with the radical spirit of its founders, Artek today remains an innovative player in the world of modern design, developing new products at the intersection of design, architecture, and art. The Artek collection consists of furniture, lighting, and accessories designed by Finnish masters and leading international designers. It stands for clarity, functionality, and poetic simplicity.
