As part of the ABC Collection, Artek is celebrating some of the brand’s most famous designs with cheery posters - such as the Stool 60, the famous stool by designer Alvar Aalto.
The stackable stool was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1933 and unites the basic ideas of the functionalism. The simple idea behind the stool – considered to be a classic piece today – is based on three bent legs and a round seat. The secret of the stool’s success lies in the shape of the legs, which in the end became a trademark of the designer and his designs.
The poster from the ABC Collection by Artek displays the Stool 60 schematically from above and the side side in poppy orange and yellow. As part of a series of iconic furniture, the stool is part of Aalto’s design chronology. A timeline of the designer’s most famous designs can be found on the bottom half of the poster as a stylistic drawing.
The poster fits in a regular frame with a size of 50 x 70 cm. Adorn the poster with a frame and protect it from humidity and dirt at the same time.
You can find other posters of the Stool 60 and other design classics in the ABC Collection by Artek.
