Avarte was founded in 1980. It picked up the existing successful collection of Yrjö Kukkapuro and developed it onward until today. Our products are an expression of our attitude, are proof of our thinking. They have a clear sense of time but carry a core that allows them to be valid throughout time. They are more than furniture; they are a cultural contribution. Successful designs, e.g. the innovative lounge chair Karuselli, have like other pieces of our portfolio, made their way into collections and museums.
