Design The concept of everyday beauty was one of the starting points for developing ARKET as well as a major influence on the Nordic modernist movement in the mid-20th century. In this section we aim to list our most prominent design initiatives.
In the Nordic countries, this ambition was associated with a new ideal of beauty which favoured clean lines, a neutral colour palette and solid materials inspired by nature and the northern climate. Above all, it made functionality and durability the basis for good design. With special attention to sustainable practices, we continue to build on the Nordic tradition of functional beauty and the mission to enhance life through well-designed everyday things. Our collections are carefully made to leave a lighter footprint and intended to be used and loved for a long time.
'The Colours of KG Nilson' is the first chapter in ARKET’s Nordic Stories series, which will showcase collaborations with independent creators and cultural institutions from the Nordic region.
