Paimio Armchair 41 by Alvar Aalto from Artek
Paimio Chair 41 by Alvar Aalto for Artek. Made in Finland. Bent white lacquered birch plywood. Designed in 1931, the Paimio Chair was named for the town in which Aalto designed a hospital and all its furnishings. Vaguely inspired by the Wassily Chair, Aalto resisted the use of metal and chose native birch wood for this shaped masterpiece. One of our all time favorite chairs. Two available, sold individually. Shipping and delivery not included in purchase.
