artek Armchair 42


Designed by Alvar in 1932. The chair's framework consists of cantilevered laminated wood legs (which flex for your sitting comfort), between which rides the seat-a thin sheet of plywood slightly curved at both top and bottom. Aalto chose to use native birch for its natural feel and insulating properties.

The seat and back are molded from one piece of plywood which is laminated in a high-shine lacquer in a choice of either Black or White.
