Brand Snapshot | ColoRing by Artek at The Conran Shop

The ColoRing collection by Jo Nagasaka celebrates 100 years of strong diplomatic relations between Finland and Japan and makes up part o f Artek’s FIN/JPN Friendship Collection, which has been created in collaboration with a selection of Japanese and Finnish designers.

Originally designed by Alvar Aalto and now reinterpreted by Jo Nagasaka in 2019, the ColoRing Stool 60, Bench 153B and Tea Trolley 901 are crafted by Artek and available in a range of colourways exclusively at The Conran Shop UK until the end of June, 2019.

Based on the age-old Japanese craft techniques of Udukuri and Tsugaru-nuri, Nagasaka’s ColoRing range beautifully showcases the wood’s natural grain whilst juxtaposing it with surprising colour combinations and irregular patterns.
