The Finnish design legend Alvar Aalto designed the Children’s Stool NE60. The round top surface and the L-like feet create a soft and simultaneously clear shape, which is typical of Aalto’s design ethos. The designs of the Finnish still look modern today thanks to the combination of natural materials with clear, simple shapes.
But of course, Aalto wasn’t only considering the pretty shape when designing the Children’s Stool NE60, based on his legendary Stool 60: as an architect he also focussed on construction and practical usage. Initially the furniture was designed for the library in Wyborg, which is why it also fulfils the practical demands of ergonomics and durability.
Artek produces the Children’s Stool NE60 from painted birch veneer. In addition to the natural coloured birch wood version, the four-legged stool is also available with a seat made with black linoleum, white laminate or Moomin troll decoration. The Children’s Stool N65 and Children’s Table 90B match the Artek stool particularly well, as all three possess Aalto’s signature clarity and harmony.
