Description

An icon of Scandinavian design, this vintage MD66 Chair was designed by Alvar Aalto and manufactured by Artek, circa 1960s. A pioneer in the innovation of plywood design, this chair is a universal minimalist take in the tradition of classic kitchen and café chairs. The wide backrest offers comfort and flexibility, while the Finnish birch used to make the chair is both durable and lightweight. Featuring a handle-like seatback, this chair is easy to move wherever it is needed.

Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) deserves an immense share of the credit for bringing Scandinavian modernism to a prominent place in the global arena. In both his buildings and in his vintage furniture — which ranges from chairs, tables and lighting to table- and glassware — Aalto’s sensitivity to the natural world and to organic forms and materials tempered the hardness of rationalist design.
