The Hallway Armchair 403 by Artek has a birch frame with transparent varnish. The sitting surface is made from moulded birch plywood. The chair is available in different colours. The Hallway Armchair is also stackable so you can store it to save space if it isn’t needed.
The Hallway Armchair is designed thoughtfully so that several of them can be combined with each other. The sharp-edged wooden construction allows multiple armchairs to be arranged by each other without any gaps or breaks. This makes the Hallway Armchair 403 suitable not just for private spaces, but also foyers, offices or practices.
The reason for the modular nature of the chair is explained by its creation: Alvar Aalto initially designed the Hallway Armchair 403 for a design competition for the tuberculosis clinic in Paimio. The Armchair 403 was created in different colour variations for the patient rooms. Alvar and his wife Aino Aalto won the competition, producing the chair in turquoise and orange/red at first.
Manufacturer Artek recommends a damp cloth for cleaning his wooden products. If necessary, soapy water can also be used. The product should be rubbed dry well at the end with a dry cloth. Black marks at its feet can rubbed away with an ordinary eraser.
