History

For 35 years, Arkitektura has been at the heart of contemporary European design in America. Since our first showroom our dedication to inspired living has been unwavering.

A leading voice in design for over three decades, Arkitektura was one of the first retailers to bring leading international brands to the American public. Arkitektura is distinguished for the amazing breadth of its offerings as well as its relationships with the world’s foremost design manufacturers such as B&B Italia, Minotti, Cassina, Poltrona Frau, Cappellini, Ingo Maurer, Fritz Hansen, Maxalto, USM, Bocci and many more.

About the Founder

“I can trace the beginnings of Arkitektura to 1964, when I was eight years old in my grandfather’s woodshop.” So began Andrew Fisher’s improbable journey into the world of designing and building furniture that would lead ultimately to Arkitektura, now celebrating its 35th year at the heart of contemporary European design in America. From his grandfather’s woodshop to teaching design at Cranbrook high school to designing and creating furniture as one of the very few accepted into the prestigious Cranbrook Academy of Art graduate program in Michigan, Fisher was born to make a difference in the world of design.

One very recent addition to this rare list is a gentleman whom I only met recently. What cant say about Allister, other than that he has inspired me, which isn’t an easy feat nowadays, by his astonishing sense of style, his flair for recreating lifestyles with his uncanny knack and vision for capturing others imagination, which I personally have witnessed on many occasions.”
