A new effort called 2nd Cycle spearheaded by Tom Dixon to buy and recycle old furniture design classics.

“Because of Alvar Aalto and Arteks legacy, and more specifically their wide distribution of home and commercial furniture in the 1930s – Artek, with Tom Dixons leadership, is re-collecting and re-issuing the old pieces (from old factories, shipyards, even flea markets) and introducing them as a new line of beautifully aged pieces. We love the idea that as a consumer, you could buy something new to you, that is already embedded with such a rich history and design legacy.”
