In a world of endless options, having someone to separate the best from the rest is an increasingly valuable commodity. MONOQI, Eurpoe's new curated shopping community, opened its virtual doors in March with the goal of being a resource for the design community to find old favorites and new names. Now, its collaboration with Artek offers members another opportunity to purchase limited edition design at "friendship prices."
Once members sign up, they will have access to the site's hand-picked stock
The Berlin-based startup will be the first such shopping site in Europe to feature Artek furniture. Minna Pendolin, Artek's export manager, sited the company's close personal connection with the MONOQI team and their belief in the sales platform as the driving reasons behind the collaboration.
"MONOQI's selection of high-quality products emphasizes values and attributes that also define our products: functionality, a timeless aesthetic and a combination of tradition and innovation, especially in terms of production values. MONOQI may still be a young company but it's already generated a lot of support in the design community-that speaks for itself," said Pendolin.
