Luxury, Style, Grit and FUN.

Artappel is a co-operative prop house started by a group of commercial   art-directors and props people, who work as Artichoke. Although we do everything and anything one may need, we have tried to put together an eclectic mix of luxurious contemporary stuff – but with balls. A world where a regency chair easily pairs with the fine lines of modernism, in a gritty concrete yard, while a child rides by on an elegant retro trike – luxury, style grit and FUN.

We are constantly buying, changing and updating our stock to meet the needs of our selves and our clients. Basically Artappel is here to make our lives easier and to enrich our lives. Please be aware that this website is by no means our complete catalogue, and it is not meant to be a substitute for a visit; those chance encounters and surrealist crashes are where the best stuff happens.

The facts

It is a surprise for many to discover that one medium artappel with the skin contains 45 percent of the daily value for vitamin C; as much or more potassium than either bananas, spinach, or broccoli – 10 percent of the daily value of B6 – and trace amounts of thiamin, riboflavin, folate, magnesium, phosphorous, iron and zinc – all for only 110 calories AND NO FAT! GOODNESS UNEARTHED. AND THAT IS OUR CREDO: a magical mix of eclectic essentials with trace amounts of necessary trite and no fat added.
