alvar aalto table 82b

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

Aalto invented a process for bending thick layers of birch into graceful yet strong frames for a number of products including Table 82. The framework consists of laminated birch wood and is topped by a 2" piece of birch with various finish options. Table 82 serves as a distinctive addition to any room or hospitality area.

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.

Table 82 features naturally lacquered birch legs with either a birch veneer, white laminate or black linoleum top.
