Timeless Character: 69 Alvar Aalto Chair 

It is one of his most famous dining chairs. The famous Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto designed a city library and its interior in 1935. In the course of this, real classics were created for Artek, such as the chair 69, whose timeless character has been in demand all over the world for decades. Both the backrest and the chair legs are rounded, which ensures a harmonious appearance. In addition, the classic chair made of solid birch wood is very stable, also due to the famous L-shape invented by Aalto, where the chair legs can be attached directly to the seat. And of course, the chair does not only fit perfectly in a dining room, but can stand anywhere, even as a desk chair.

Ingenious pioneer in furniture design: architect and designer Alvar Aalto

Alvar Aalto is considered one of the best designers and architects in the world. Already in the 1930s, the Finn amazed with constructions that have become indispensable in the furniture industry. 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 New York World's Fair. 

Artek - always modern

Artek was founded in Helsinki in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen and Nils-Gustav Hahl. With their designs, they wanted to promote a modern culture of living. The radical spirit of its founders still lives in Artek today and so the company produces furniture from the world of modern design that stands at the interface of design, architecture and art. They are characterised by clarity, functionality and poetic simplicity.
