by Alvar Aalto from Artek

lounge chair 43

Design Alvar Aalto, 1937
Form-bent solid birch lamella, linen webbing
Made in Finland by Artek

"Objects are made to be completed by the human mind." - Alvar Aalto

The stunning Lounge Chair 43 further explores the possibilities of bentwood manufacturing. A statement in design, it showcases the stability and flexibility offered by birch lamella, which allows for curves and bends comparable in strength to tubular steel, but with a warmer look and feel. With a frame of cantilevered laminated birch wood and a linen webbing upholstery, Lounge Chair 43 marries beauty with exceptional comfort.

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.

The framework is natural lacquered with choice of linen webbing color.
