Design Alvar Aalto, 1933 Bent birch plywood, upholstery Made in Finland by Artek
Another sculptural chair which seems to test the limits of bent plywood manufacturing. The chair's framework consists of cantilevered laminated wood legs (which flex for your sitting comfort), between which rides the seat.
Alvar Aalto was a highly talented architect and an eager spokesman for the international modernist movement. Aalto's designs were innovative and radical and became known for his experimental approach to bending wood, which greatly influenced American designers Charles & Ray Eames and Finnish-born Eero Saarinen. His style became known as humanist modernism. Alvar Aalto's dialogue with nature, architecture, design and the human being has become a living legacy.
The framework is natural lacquered birch, the seat is available upholstered in a variety of fabrics.
