- Made in Finland by Artek”Objects are made to be completed by the human mind.” -Alvar AaltoThe invention by Alvar Aalto and the joiner Otto Korhonen of bending chair legs from solid wood made it possible for the Aalto stool to be conceived. Through this method Aalto achieved one of the main goals of modern furniture design; the mass production of furniture. Joints, which demanded a good deal of time and skilled workmanship, could be abandoned.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.Stool K65 features natural lacquered birch legs and seat. The seat can be specified in your choice of birch veneer, black linoleum & white laminate. The entire stool can also be specified with a lacquered finish.
