Chilling in the special cantilever chair: 42 Artek armchair

This beautiful and stable design cantilever chair from the successful label Artek from Finland has a history. A success story. It was designed decades ago, in 1932 to be precise, by the famous Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto and is still manufactured today in the same factory using the same methods as back then - and it is so timelessly beautiful that it has been classified as modern time and again - and still causes astonishment when someone reveals its true age. But more than that: it is the first cantilever chair to be made of laminated wood. Stable, beautifully shaped, elegant. A masterpiece. Bring a piece of history into your home! Chill out in a very special cantilever chair, amaze your guests with the details of your new furniture treasure. With its rounded yet clean lines, it fits perfectly into a modern, minimalist ambience. But what does modern mean? The great armchair made of untreated birch wood has taught us that this attribute is completely unimportant when the piece of furniture works in itself. No matter where you put the 42 Design Armchair by Artek, it looks good, it shines - it simply has class.

Ingenious pioneer in furniture design: architect and designer Alvar Aalto

Alvar Aalto is considered to be one of the best designers and architects worldwide. Already in the 1930s, the Finn amazed with constructions that are still indispensable in the furniture industry today. Aalto is also the pioneer par excellence in laminated wood processing. Influenced by the German Bauhaus, he experimented with this material since the end of the 1920s and, together with his wife Aino Aalto, created numerous pieces of furniture that combined modern forms with natural materials. His architectural masterpieces include the Paimio Clinic in Turku (now a World Heritage Site), the library in Viipuri (in what is now Russia) and the Finnish Pavilion at the 1939 World's Fair in New York.
