The Aino Aalto designed Side Table 606 is an unusual piece, since the side table was originally designed das stool. As well as her husband Alvar, Aino Aalto also renounced unnecessary details and concentrated on soft, clear forms. The Side Table 606 belongs to the collection of black furniture pieces as well as the Chair 23, which was presented by both Aaltos in 1933 in London.
The Side Table 606 suits in the most different surroundings because of the simple colour, form and the stacking capacity – in private as well as public rooms. The 606 was initially used as stool in the Alvar Aalto designed clinic in Paimio – its simple, clear shape, makes the Side Table 606 multifunctional and multi-usable. Artek manufactures the Side Table 606 with a frame out of matt lacquered steel tube and a board of birch veneer.
