Design Alvar Aalto, 1935
Bent birch plywood
Made in Finland by Artek
The invention by Alvar Aalto and the joiner Otto Korhonen of bending chair legs from solid wood made it possible for the Aalto stool to be conceived. Through this method Aalto achieved one of the main goals of modern furniture design; the mass production of furniture. Joints, which demanded a good deal of time and skilled workmanship, could be abandoned. The basic Aalto stool is 3-legged. Because of this, even large numbers of them can be stacked and stored in very little space.
