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

A sculptural and classic lounge chair which seems to test the limits of bent plywood manufacturing. The chair's framework consists of bent laminated wood, the seat has rubber belts, PU foam and dacron upholstered in your choice of fabrics. All you have to do is sit back and relax.

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.

The framework is natural lacquered birch, the seat is available upholstered in a variety of fabrics or black leather.
