Table Y805

****Ships In 20-24 Weeks****

Design Alvar Aalto, 1946
Bent birch plywood, glass top
Made in Finland by Artek


Aalto invented a process for bending thick layers of birch to create graceful yet strong, light frames for a number of products including these Y805 tables. The framework consists of laminated birch wood and is topped by a .3" thick glass top. The Y805 tables serve as a distinctive addition to any room.

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.

Y805 tables feature either a naturally lacquered, black lacquered or white lacquered birch frame with a .3" or .5" (31.1" only) glass top.
