Design Alvar Aalto, 1936
Bent birch plywood, upholstery
Made in Finland by Artek

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

Armchair 400, the "tank chair" is one of Aalto's classic pieces. Another sculptural chair which seems to test the limits of bent plywood manufacturing. The chair's framework consists of cantilevered laminated birch wood legs (which flex for your sitting comfort), between which rides the seat. An impressive design which offers 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 or black lacquered birch, seat with zig-zag springs, PU foam and polyester wadding. Armchair 400 is available upholstered in a variety of fabrics.
