ARKET supports Vitra Design Museum’s new interior exhibition — and let everyone support Save The Children for Valentine’s
The Home Stories exhibition in Weil am Rhein, Germany highlights western urban, political, societal and technical shifts that has changed our domestic way of living by the eyes of iconic artists such as Adolf Loos, Finn Juhl, Andy Warhol, and Elsie de Wolfe.
After the opening last Saturday, for this spring and summer, the retailer is supporting the Vitra Design Museum’s major exhibition Home Stories: 100 Years, 20 Visionary Interiors. It explores the role of private interiors in everyday life and highlights the cultural evolution of architecture and design over the last 100 years – from the birth of the modern interior to the technical and societal shifts in the domestic space that we’re experiencing today.
— We feel a strong connection with Vitra and the Vitra Design Museum. Many of the artists and designers featured in this exhibition have been a direct influence on ARKET and our philosophy of design, especially the timeless modernism of the Nordic creators which lie at the core of who we are and how we see ourselves. It is interesting to consider how interiors and design in general affect our daily lives, and also the quality of life. It’s a topic we naturally often return to when developing our collections, says Anna Teurnell, Head of Design.
Throughout the exhibition period, until August 23, selected ARKET goods will be offered in the Vitra Design Museum shop.
And right in time for Valentine’s tomorrow, ARKET café introduces the Heartbeet pastry in support of Save the Children. It is made with freshly grated beetroots and ground green cardamom, sprinkled with sugar and tangy sumac spice. The cake will sell for €2,90 and all proceeds throughout February will be donated, as ARKET’s first collaboration with an NGO.
— This is our version of a Valentine’s Day sweet, loaded with colour and warming, energizing flavours from around the world to stimulate the senses. We want to broaden the meaning of this day and hope to inspire generosity and thoughtfulness towards the people around us, says Martin Berg, Head Chef at ARKET café, who’s developed the cake.ARKET
