Aalto Stool 60 by Artek

Alvar Aalto is considered one of the masters of modern design and this iconic stacking stool is one of the reasons why. Artek continues to produce Aalto’s furniture line, designed in the 1930’s, including the 60 stool, a brilliant combination of practicality, style and Aalto’s own design vision.

The stool is made from high quality birch veneers and comes in either the original three legged version or a newer four legged option. The simple style of the L-shaped bent legs is deceptive, all part of Aalto’s design genius. He developed the technique for bending the wood himself to ensure the legs would never warp and would retain their shape for generations with incredible strength. As a result, you can rely on this stool to last for generations.

The minimalist style combined with the warmth of wood allows you to use the Aalto stool in any decor from traditional to post-modern. The clean lines made from natural materials harmonize with whatever pieces you put it with. Because you can order your Aalto 60 stools with a variety of colored laminate tops, consider getting a few for extra seating. They stack together beautifully for easy storage, another carefully crafted feature of Aalto’s strong interest in practical design aesthetic.

17.38″h x 15″w x 15″ dia.

Available in birch veneer, black laminate and white laminate, all with a variety of colored tops. You could order your Aalto Stool 60 by Artek from unica HOME for between $260 and $430.
