armchair 42
Design Alvar Aalto, 1932
Bent birch plywood
Made in Finland by Artek

'Objects are made to be completed by the human mind.' -Alvar Aalto

Another sculptural chair which seems to test the limits of bent plywood manufacturing.
This model was first shown at an exhibition at the Nordic Building forum in 1932. The
chair's framework consists of cantilevered laminated wood legs (which flex for your
sitting comfort), between which rides the seat—a thin sheet of plywood slightly curved
at both top and bottom. Aalto chose to use native birch for its natural feel and insulating
properties.

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 lacquered in your choice
of either black or white.
