Yrjö Kukkapuro Wire

Dwell goes behind the scenes on the production of its June feature on the studio of Finnish design legend Yrjö Kukkapuro, who is now collaborating with Artek to produce his midcentury furniture designs. We now know that Kukkapuro and his graphic designer wife—whose shared "home-as-workshop" studio is filled with chair prototypes—are "completely in love, completely in sync, completely in stride in matters of taste and hard work," and do outdoor calisthenics together every morning, even in the winter.
