The Artek Armchair 406 was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1939, yet retains a modern look even today. Formed from lacquered plywood frame, its seat & back are constructed from linen webbing that looks great and is very comfortable.
Alvar Aalto (1898-1976), one of the founders of Artek, was born in Kuortane, Finland. Alvar Aalto is recognized today as one of the great masters of modern architecture. During his long and prolific career, Aalto’s work embraced almost all key public institutions - town halls, theatres, churches, libraries and universities - as well as standardized housing and private homes.
