Admired as much for its sculptural presence as for its comfort, the Paimio Chair (also known as chair 41) seems to test the limits of bent plywood manufacturing. The chair’s framework consists of two closed loops of laminated wood, between which rides the seat-a thin sheet of plywood tightly bent at both top and bottom into sinuous scrolls, giving it greater resiliency. Inspired by Marcel Breuer’s tubular-steel Wassily Chair of 1927-28, Aalto chose, instead, native birch for its natural feel and insulating properties, and developed a more organic form.
Architect Alvar Aalto also had a distinguished career as a lamp designer. Aalto’s lamps often arose from individual construction project. Many models were further adapted and developed for serial production. Artek’s production includes several original designs dating from 1937 to 1959. From pendant and ceiling fixtures to floor and table lamps, his lighting was minimal yet elegant while offering a timeless quality.
Aalto invented a process for bending thick layers of birch into gracefully curved loops to create strong, light frames for a number of products, including his famous tea trolleys. For easy movement, these charming and highly functional pieces have large white wheels with black rubber tread that won’t mar floors. The handle and edge banding are solid birch. The Tea trolleys serve as highly functional and distinctive additions to a dining room or hospitality area.
The work of Finnish interior architect and furniture designer Yrjö Kukkapuro has received a new home as part of the Artek Collection. The Karuselli lounge chair with it’s futuristic yet inviting design is the first of this addition. The lounge chair and ottoman feature a white fiberglass shell and base with chromed steel accents and offered in your choice of white or black leather upholstery.
