42 armchair designed by Alvar Aaalto for Artek in 1932.

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 42 design.

Bent laminated and solid birch frame with lacquered bent plywood seat.

Available in black or white.

60w x 75d x 36/72cmh
