Artika, Artika si, Artika Wood, Miss Artika, Miss Artika Wood, Miss Artika si
A wide and enveloping design for Artika, a padded chair capable of holding and embracing a person.
The distinguishing feature of the Artika chair, which is clearly evident from the front, is its backrest that constitutes a single whole with the seat and opens out at the top, giving the observer the idea of expansion and breadth. Artika is modelled with dynamic and comfortable lines, rigorous and solid shapes, according to harmonious proportions and structural solutions of strong impact. The seat is covered in leather, eco-leather or fabric, materials chosen to last a long time and to ensure maximum versatility of use and numerous possibilities of colour combinations. The lower part, in metal, is made with the classic four legs or with an original sled-shaped base (Artika si); for both solutions it is possible to choose from the many colours of painted metal or refined finishes. It is alternatively possible opt for the variant with wooden legs (Artika Wood) or completely covered. Versions with armrests (Miss Artika, Miss Artika si, Miss Artika Wood) and the stool (Artika too, Artika wood too) are available as well.

The collaboration between Gino Carollo and Bonaldo started at the beginning of 2000. It was founded on a shared outlook towards internationalization and industrial design, toward product design linked to engineering, to the meticulousness of the process that starts from the prototyping stage up to the realization of finished models. Some of the most popular products made for Bonaldo include the Fun bookshelf, the April, May and June shelving units and the AX table.
