401 armchair designed by Alvar Aalto for Artek.

Please note: due to the foam used in its construction, this chair is available for contract use only.

Alvar Aalto was one of the founders of Artek and he is recognised today as one of the great masters of modern architecture. Alvar Aalto began designing furnishings as a natural and important extension of his architectural thinking. A spokesman for the modernist movement, he was also known for his experimental approach to bending wood, which can be seen with the armchair 401 design.

Sprung seat with polyurethane foam and polyester wadding. Birch armrests available in natural or black lacquer.
Upholstered in fabrics and leathers of the collection.

62.5w x 80d x 40/105cmh
