Chair Designed by Alvar Aalto for Artek, Finland, 1950s

Chair Designed by Alvar Aalto for Artek, Finland, 1950s

Chair designed in 1950s by Alvar Aalto. "We should work for simple, good, undecorated things, but things which are in harmony with the human being and organically suited to the little man in the street." Alvar Aalto, 1957. This chair is undecorated. It just shows natural wood itself. I think this bare wood design is in harmony with the 'human being' as Aalto said.
