Together with the Dutch colour and textile designer Hella Jongerius, Artek has developed new, two-tone colour for its linen webbing. The different tones of warp and weft give the webbing a vivid, almost three-dimensional expression. Also, the technical features of the webbing have been updated: the webbing is pre-stretched after weaving for extra stiffness and durability. The webbing is made of twisted linen yarn in Germany.
Needed amount of replacement webbing for Artek chairs:
- 43 lounge chair: 34 m
- 45 armchair: 20 m
- 406 armchair: 20 m
- 611 chair: 13 m (seat 8 m, backrest 6 m)
- 615 chair 12,5 m (seat 8 m, backrest 5 m)
- Y61 stool: 7,2 m
Due to the natural colour variations of linen, Artek recommends replacing the webbing for the seat and backrest at the same time. Linen may stretch slightly with use.
