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.

Timeless design

5 of 5 stars 2019-05-24, , Artek - 60 Stool, lacquered black / natural birch wood

Automatically translated from German

Cleaner stool reduced to the essentials. It comes flat packed and is quickly assembled. No comparison with the replica of a Scandinavian furniture chain. This stool is flawlessly crafted and surprisingly heavy. The black lacquered surface is matt and easy to clean.

Do you have to have several of them?

Of course it is not mandatory, but the different uses as a stool, order table or simply as a shelf make this stool so practical. Otherwise just stack them on top of each other in the next corner. All designs are easy to combine and there should be something for every taste. The quality is top! Easy to assemble and a safe piece of furniture for life.

I have never regretted the purchase, as with the other two with different surfaces. So versatile, so practical. Heavy, but easy to assemble. Massive quality.

Automatically translated from German

The Artek stool has been on the wish list for a long time and is totally convincing: excellent workmanship, easy to assemble. He cuts a fine figure everywhere. At the moment I use it as a table next to the sofa. The seat height is rather at the lower end, but still sufficiently high for most adult Oersonen.

If you don't treat the stool like a raw egg, you will notice that the colour is very sensitive and will crack very quickly or discolour very quickly, e.g. drops of coffee can only be removed with a lot of effort.

Absolute design classic that impresses with its functionality and simplicity even after more than 80 years. As expected, the workmanship is of high quality and there is not much that can be done wrong during assembly. Great "entry-level model" into the world of Aalto furniture.

1 of 1 customers have found this review helpful.

Automatically translated from German

The approach of investing in quality rather than quantity is very appealing to me. Of course, the stool is quite expensive, but the timeless and elegant design is, in my opinion, beyond all doubt - and stands out clearly from the cheap Ikea version both visually and in terms of material quality.

The stool is delivered in a pretty and simple box and is quick to assemble. The paintwork and workmanship are as always perfect at Artek and of course the stool looks great. The stool should not be missing in any household.

Stool, simple and simple

The Artek stool looks very nice. The Ikea model for this does not show much difference, except in price. That's why the article went back. Although I love ARTEK.


Comment by the Connox Team:
Sehr geehrte Frau C., Ikea Entwürfe sind keine exakten Kopien ihrer Vorbilder und sind trotz ihrer äußerlichen Ähnlichkeit oft ganz anders umgesetzt – verwenden etwa andere Materialien und Konstruktionsweisen. Alvar Aaltos Entwurf ist deutlich älter, als der Ikea-Hocker. Der Architekt entwarf das Möbelstück 1933 für die Bestuhlung der Bibliothek von Viipuri – also zehn Jahre bevor das Unternehmen Ikea gegründet wurde. Ikea ließ sich vom Hocker 60 inspirieren und übernahm dabei die Grundform, die unter anderem dafür sorgt, dass der Hocker platzsparend zu stapeln ist. Wir hoffen, dass Sie bei der nächsten Lieferung wieder vollauf zufrieden sein werden. Mit besten Grüßen Ihr Connox-Team

The colour yellow generally stands for summer and sun and so the classic from Artek with the yellow seat wood is in a good mood! Quality as usual very good.
