Abstract

After the Second World War the relationship between the now world renowned Aalto atelier and Artek changed from a single unified position to one of distinct entities. This reflects the shift the focus of the Aalto atelier onto civic reconstruction and architecture, as well as the loss of key partnerships that underlay Alvar Aalto's creative process. It also reflects the inherent tension in trying to combine a cultural enterprise and a commercial intent.
