Arktura - Design & Manufacturing innovation from LA
The focus of the company stems from the belief that great design cannot be created without a close integration with the process of manufacture.
Since the moment our local sales rep brought the Arktura catalogue to the office, I was trying to make time to enjoy flipping page by page and study the graceful lines of the pictured designs. The images are resembling ultra modern European style in combination with Japanese minimalism but made in the USA, with resonating sustainable efforts. The majority of the products are made using durable long-lasting materials with high recycled content that produce zero landfill waste; and, at the end of their life cycle are fully recyclable. The finishes release no toxins during application or in site. The presentation binder has the cover made out of the cartboard. “Our firm is committed to energy sustainability through solar and wind power”. The LA based team of designers with reputable experience have done a successful step in getting out of the comfort zone and left behind the eclecticism common in the US residential and small scale commercial market. These designs are asking for public exposure and debate not just due the striking color selection and glossy finishes but by the geometric precision, balance and simplicity of each form resulting from the close focus on the integration of design, with the development of new manufacturing technologies. “This way design and manufacture take on a new synergies, setting our designers free to explore new forms and use materials unseen in the industry”. Designers involved have professional degrees with practice of national and international exposure and we hope their determination to deliver extraordinary pieces that set new standards for creativity and innovation is infinite.
