Design Alvar Aalto,1935
Birch, Lacquered Linoleum, Veneer, Wood
Made in Finland by Artek

Table 86A is Alvar Aalto's timeless design from 1935. The rectangular dining table combines solid birch with easy-care linoleum.

Artek tables are based on different combinations of Alvar Aalto’s L-legs and tabletops. Aalto introduced the bent L-leg for the first time in 1933, and it became a standard component in his furniture designs. Judging his importance as a designer and architect, Aalto considered the development of the L-leg as his greatest achievement – he called the L-leg as "the little sister of the architectonic column". The development of the L-leg was revolutionary because it solved the problem of attaching legs directly to the tabletop in a completely new way – the leg could be fastened with screws directly to the tabletop, and the result was a solid and simple structure.
