Studio TK has entered into a new product partnership with Artifort to manufacture and distribute select Artifort furnishings, including chairs, tables and sofas, in North America. The first four products in the partnership will be launched at NeoCon 2018 in Studio TK’s new showroom.
“As a family company, we look forward to this sustainable partnership with Studio TK,” said Maurits Van der Lande, vice president of sales at Artifort, in a press release. “It will have a positive influence on the awareness of our iconic, timeless and accessible design in North America. The 128-year-old Artifort brand has always stood for leading design and exceptional quality, and this mission is an excellent match for the culture of Studio TK.”
“We are excited with the opportunities that this new partnership with Artifort affords Studio TK and our customers,” added Charlie Bell, president of Studio TK. “Under the terms of the agreement, we will begin offering select Artifort products in North America. Producing the products in our Clayton, North Carolina facility will provide clients with shorter lead times and a U.S. shipment point. The core of the relationship is to continue to expand the Artifort product offering in North America over time.”
Initially, Studio TK will produce and distribute Artifort’s Beso seating collection, Pala lounge, Kalm lounge and Nina seating, which are launching at NeoCon. They will all be on display at Studio TK’s new showroom during NeoCon 2018, which is taking place at The Merchandise Mart in Chicago from June 11 to 13.
