The mystery of the Arkana brand

Arkana is a brand shrouded in mystery – very little information is available on them outside of the main themes known to fans of 1960’s modernist furniture of the Eames era.

Arkana was based in Falkirk in Scotland, a family business with representation as far as Denmark.

What I do know is they made a wide range of beautiful chairs and furniture in conjunction with Maurice Burke – some nice examples of which are below. If you know more do get in touch and provide more information.

    I came across your posting regarding Arkana Industries.I was employed there in the 60’s. I still have pictures of other employees and clippings from the newspaper regarding the move that was made when Bath Cabinet makers took over the business. I moved to Canada in 1970 and still use what was known as the Chelsea chair and the matching foot stool.
