Welcome to Villa Hager, a home created by Artek on Vitra's Campus for a family of four.
The home represents Artek's core values and the Nordic way of living - a place where simplicity, functionality, and beauty for the everyday are central. The home includes both the strong tradition of the Finnish masters - Aalto, Tapiovaara, Kukkapuro - as well as contemporary designers such as Konstantin Grcic, Hella Jongerius, and Barber Osgerby.
Simple shapes, strong patterns, and primary colors.
Abundant light is everywhere in the home and design remains sustainable, with durable pieces and a commitment to high quality and timeless classics.

Born in Viipuri, Finland in 1933, Yrjö Kukkapuro is one of the most well known and successful Finnish designers. After graduating as an interior architect from the Institute of Industrial Arts in Helsinki in 1958, Kukkapuro founded his own design office - Studio Kukkapuro. From the 1960s through the 1990s, the designer worked as a teacher and professor.
This year, one of Kukkapuro's most well known designs celebrates it's 50th anniversary - the Karuselli lounge chair.

This new addition to the Artek product range was the result of extensive experimentation and a revolutionary combination of ergonomics with new technology. Eventually, Kukkapuro used his own body as a guide to create the chair's unique shape.

Kukkapuro's work can be seen in the permanent collections of several museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Victoria & Albert in London, Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg, National Museum of Art in Stockholm, and the Vitra Design Museum in Germany.
