Artek Bench 153

bench 153
Design Alvar Aalto, 1945
Bent birch plywood
Made in Finland by Artek

This sculptural bench is another example of early bent plywood manufacturing. The bench's framework consists of birch plywood laminated legs. This bench is available in two sizes and offered with a natural lacquer finish, or lacquered in white, black, red or grey. A simple and elegant bench which fits into any setting.

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.
