Artek Oy has moved its headquarters to new premises in central Helsinki. Situated in an elegant 19th-century building at Mannerheimintie 12 B, the new space is just a few minutes' walks from the Artek Store. It was conceived as a working showroom where architects and dealers can bring clients to experience Artek and Vitra furniture. Inside, interior architect Sevil Peach has designed an open environment that inspires a new way of working.

Spread across 470 square metres, the new space puts people first. In the current digitalised age, explains Peach, “nothing beats face-to-face encounters (…) important is how people behave in these spaces.” Conceived in that spirit, the new headquarters empowers users to work in various ways depending on their individual tasks and needs, flexible and human-centred.
