ARTEK Fabrics
Siena & Rivi patterns

Siena pattern

design Alvar Aalto, 1954

Alvar Aalto designed the Siena pattern in 1954 as a fabric that could be easily used for a variety of purposes, in large or small areas. 

The famous Finnish architect and designer has always had a special fondness for Italy, where he made many trips and carried out many projects. It was in Siena that he designed this simple formal pattern, which is now used in many products.

Rivi pattern

design Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2017

The Rivi pattern - Finnish for line - is based on hand-drawn parallel lines extending endlessly in both directions. The beauty of Rivi comes from the contrast between the geometric rigor of the concept and the natural irregularity of the handmade designs. 

It fits perfectly into Artek's aesthetic tradition, where the irregularities of wood have always been seen as assets to be shown rather than flaws to be hidden.
