The Artek 42 Armchair, from master creative Alvar Aalto is an impressive wooden chair that runs rich with heritage.
First produced in 1932, this low lounge chair carries an iconic silhouette, which will prove instantly recognisable to any discerning connoisseur of modernist design. The Artek 42 Armchair is at home in house or gallery space, with the reality of the soft plywood seat running in contrast with our expectations of what wood should feel like to sit on. The ultimate aesthetic is one devoid of straight lines, with the fluidity of the form making for an impactful, memorable piece.

Founded by Maire Gullichsen, Nils-Gustav Hahl and Alvar and Aino Aalto in 1935 in Helsinki Finland, Artek had the goal “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means.”

Combining “Art” and “Technology” both in name and in their approach towards design, Artek is one of the most innovative studios in the world of modern design.
