Description

The stackable Stool 60 was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1933 and initially manufactured by O.y. Huonekalu – ja Rakennustyötehdas. After founding Artek in 1935, the stool was brought into Artek’s standard range. The simple three-legger became a famous bestseller in the 1940s.

The famous design was created for the library in Viipuri and then travelled the entire world. The minimalist and functional design was revolutionary at the time. Instead of regular steel, the architect and designer Alvar Aalto used birch wood, which is widely available in Finland. For this reason, the unusual stool was also affordable for poorer families.

And to continue the tradition, Artek still produces the Stool 60 today from bent solid birch veneer. The timber is bent in a process designed specially by Aalto, with the legs and seating surface being glued to build a visual unity. The seat is available in several lacquered versions (clear, black or white). Moreover, the stool comes with different seating surfaces such as coated with black linoleum or white laminate or upholstered with fabric or leather.

To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Stool 60, Artek is presenting a few special editions of the stool - with coloured seat surfaces as well as limited editions with different patterns from different artists.

A classic, excellent and functional stool that fits in well in a variety of settings. I'm currently using it as a bedside table for my bedroom and it serves the purpose rather well! Highly recommended! 5/5
