Artek and International Club invite you an Evening @ Artek! Come and join us to this inspiring event with fellow Helsingin Ekonomit members.
Artek was founded in 1935 - the same year as Helsingin Ekonomit was founded, too - to “sell furniture and promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means". Today, Artek is part of Vitra, a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design.
In the event we will first hear brief company presentation on history of Artek and current outlook on the company as part of global Vitra organization.
Then, Tim Reusch the Head of Consulting and Planning at Vitra, will give an inspiring perspective on the shift in the use of workspace, as many of us have witnessed firsthand in the recent years. He will share his views on the hot topic of new workplace: Since the pandemic and the lockdown experience, the rupture with our "old" habits, we are more aware of our needs. What are the needs of your employees? What are the needs of your organization?
