The Aalto Stool 60 isn’t a new piece, it was originally released in 1933 for Artek. However, the graphic simplicity of this design icon is still relevant today. The three legged stool was Finnish architect and designer, Alvar Aalto’s first use of the L-leg. Steam is used to bend the solid birch leg, eliminating the need for visually intrusive joinery to connect the top. This technique was later employed by American modernist designers, Charles & Ray Eames. The Aalto Stool 60 works great as extra seating but is just as stunning as a small side table beside the couch or bed. Or, if your lucky enough to have an excess of these classics, they look great stacked.
