Af Schultén began working at Artek as a summer intern, and went on to rise trough the ranks, ultimately succeeding Aino Aalto and Maija Heikinheimo as Artistic Directors. Artek’s multidisciplinary design approach with its firm focus on visual art resonated strongly with Ben af Schultén.
The publication includes great deal of pictures from the archives of Alvar Aalto Museum, Artek and Ben af Schultén.

All the text used in this work is based on a Master’s Degree dissertation by Marja Kosunen entitled “Artek as a calling and a lifetime’s work. An account of Ben af Schultén’s career at Artek.”
