Description This pre-loved pair of black Alvar Aalto stools are a classic addition to any room. The Stool 60 was designed in 1933 by Finnish designer Alvar Aalto, who is considered as one of the founding fathers of modern design. The bentwood solution of the Stool 60's L shaped leg is popular among all of Aalto's pieces. Not only was Aalto concerned with formal design concerns but also in the spirit of beautiful materials and the simple forms of modernism. Aalto was a fan of artists such as Jean Arp and Brancusi. These stools are in lovely used condition, the black laminate is in good condition, one of them has minuscule white speckles on it. Great as additional seating, or side tables they can be kept in any corner stacked and ready to use. Not sure the year in which these were produced but they have definitely seen their years as the varnish is older. Obtained directly in Helsinki from Artek 2nd cycle in Finland.
Styles / Movements Mid Century, Modern, Scandinavian Modern
