Stool 60, legs birch, seat orange - Artek
Alvar Aalto’s iconic Stool 60 can be used as a seat, a table, a storage unit, or a display surface. The stool has barely changed in either material or form since it was designed in 1933, celebrating its 90th anniversary this year! Making it the perfect example of ‘designed to last’ and an absolute key item in the home of Susan and Vincent.
The stool uses a clever technique to bend the wood into shape. The legs are screwed directly into the seat for stability and to make it light and strong. It can be stacked and works well on uneven floors. The stool is available in a wide variety of colours and finishes. The colour combinations available in our webshop have been curated by Susan herself.

About the designer:
Recognised today as one of the great masters of modern architecture and one of the co-founders of Artek, Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) was born in Kuortane, Finland. Aalto designed buildings for almost all key public institutions, standardised housing and private homes. Aalto began designing furnishings as a natural extension of his architectural thinking. His first modern piece of furniture was created in 1931-32 for the tuberculosis sanatorium in Paimio, Finland. Artek was set up in 1935 to market and sell his and his wife Aino’s furniture, lighting, and textiles, particularly on international markets.
