Description Aalto's most famous chair, the 41 Paimio armchair can be found in numerous museums including the Museum of Modern Art. The laminated birch frame is bent into a unique closed curve supported by solid birch cross-rails. The seat is molded from one piece of birch plywood. The idea of fixing plywood onto a closed frame was Aalto's 1931 brainstorm for making a wooden chair "soft" and as a result this wooden chair has a springy quality. Made in Finland by Artek.

Light vintage wear.
