A feature that would later distinguish all Alvar Aalto furnture--the L-bend wood leg--was first used in the now classic 1933 design of the Stool 60. Three of these sharply angled legs support a simple round seat. For its 80th anniversary, the Artek Stool 60 is available in the original natural birch (with or without a Black linoleum or White laminate seat), Black, Red, Gray or White.
Founded in Finland in 1935 by four self-proclaimed idealists, Artek stands strong on the company's ethics, product aesthetics and ecology. With products that offer the Scandinavian look--clean lines, minimal fluff--Artek has built a line that incorporates a modern, approachable appeal into modern furniture and lighting design.
The Stool 60 is available with the following:
- Made of lacquered birch veneer
- Ships flat
- Assembly required
- Made in Finland
- Designed by Alvar Aalto, 1933
- Item: Height 17.3", Diameter 15"
