Officially joining forces in 2013 after Vitra acquired Artek, the two furniture companies enlisted the help of Ilse Crawford of Studio Ilse who created a glorious space to introduce the union of the two brands. Rather than simply display their products alongside each other, the shared brand is introduced in the form of a story: an imaginary home of a fictitious Finnish-German couple, Harri and Astrid.
