Artek 403 Hallway Armchair

armchair 403
Design Alvar Aalto, 1932.
Birch, birch plywood.
Made in Finland by Artek.

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

This sculptural, stackable chair seems to test the limits of bent plywood manufacturing. The chair's framework consists of birch wood legs, between which rides the seat-a thin sheet of plywood slightly curved at both top and bottom. A chair with great design, elegant style and fun colors perfect for any space, public or private.

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.

Armchair 403 features birch framework, the molded birch plywood seat is available in natural lacquer or painted in your choice of white, black, orange, yellow or green.
