Design by Alvar Aalto, 1933.
One of Artek's best sellers, Stool 60 has limitless applications and lasting appeal. This L-leg stool features legs made of solid birch reinforced by thin pieces of plywood that are glued where the leg is bent, making it extremely durable. Stackable, portable and offered in eleven finishes.
Stool 60 is a fine example of Alvar Aalto's interest in basic functional, utilitarian forms. It's 3-leg silhouette allows for even large numbers of the stool to be stacked and stored in very little space.

Would appreciate a better system to properly align the legs with each other in relation to the top. Similarly - a better way for an amateur to align the screws when assembling
they look incredible
