Alvar Aalto was fascinated by wood, exploring its possibilities, testing limits, and discovering what modern production methods could achieve. The stackable Stool60 (est. 1933) is a result of this and best known for Aalto’s invention for bending solid wood creating the famous ‘L’ shaped leg. Referred to by Aalto as “the little sister of the architectural column.”

Artek was founded in Helsinki in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. Their goal was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means.” In keeping with the radical spirit of its founders, Artek today remains an innovative player in the world of modern design, developing new products at the intersection of design, architecture, and art. The Artek collection consists of furniture, lighting, and accessories designed by Finnish masters and leading international designers. It stands for clarity, functionality, and poetic simplicity.
