Bambu Collection by Artek Studio/Henrik Tjaerby 2007/2008

Under Tom Dixon’s creative stewardship (2004-2009), the Finnish design company has made clear its commitment to a more ecologically minded approach to product design by launching its ‘Bambu’ Collection. Product longevity has, fittingly, been part of Artek for a long time. Dixon’s position as creative director of the firm has continued this tradition, while adding sustainability to its general product-development brief. Designed by Artek Studio/Henrik Tjaerby, the resolutely minimal ‘Bambu’ chair, dining table and coffee table use the linear flow of their constituent glued bamboo strips to emphasize the furniture’s simple and beautiful curves. Made of laminated bamboo. Manufacturer: ARTEK
