An Alvar Aalto Design. Reinterpreted by Mike Meire.
By Artek.

A quintessential piece of modern design, Stool 60 is one of the best-known design items in the world, and an iconic piece in the Artek collection. Today, it is being revisited by international designers including product design house Monocle. This unique interpretation pairs the iconic Stool 60 bent birch wood legs with an upholstered leather seat in supple brown moose leather.

It was now 80 years ago, that designer and Artek co-founder Alvar Aalto launched his Stool 60 to great acclaim. The simple, stackable and durable wooden stool represented a new approach to furniture design with the revolutionary use of wood instead of bent steel as was traditional at the time. And the ground breaking Stool 60 proved a durable and modern solution that would influence a large number of today's classic designs. Throughout 2013, Artek commemorates Stool 60's 80th Anniversary by introducing a series of limited edition stools, designed by a select few architects and designers.


Material(s): Unfinished birch wood, moose leather

Dimensions: 17.3" H X 15" Dia



Alvar Aalto

Designer: Alvar Aalto

Alvar Aalto began designing furnishings as early as the 1920's. They were a natural and important extension of his architectural thinking. To Aalto, a piece of furniture was not simply an isolated object in space. He was a comprehensive artist in the architectural and design fields who focused his attention on even the smallest of details.

Artek was established in 1935 to market his furniture, lamps and fabrics. A long tradition as a manufacturer of outstanding articles for daily use has made Artek an internationally known and recognized quality design brand.

Aalto's beautiful and functional furniture is still very popular around the world in spite of changing styles.
