click to enlarge

The low-set Aalto Lounge chair was first designed by Alvar Aalto in 1935. Aalto developed a revolutionary technique for bending thick layers of birch laminate into indented closed loops. These pieces were used as elegantly curved frames for a number of ground breaking furniture products, including this chair. A uniquely connected armrest and frame has become the signature feature of the stunning 44 armchair. Made in Finland by Finmar dating from the 1930's. The chair has been reupholstered in a Holland & Sherry fabric. No repairs to the frame and all original springs.
