Description:
 

Finnish architecht Alvar Aalto revolutionized modern design with the use of new bentwood techniques.

Alvar Aalto successfully created a cantilevered chair made from laminated Birch timber which previously had only been possible to achieve in steel.This timber frame work had been used successfully with his 1933 cantilevered armchair for the Paimio Sanitarium.

This 406 chair was the mature design of his original concept. Aalto believed in the importance of continuing with a design concept to fully achieve it's potential, and he certainly has with this chair.

It's gentle curves and airy form suggests it has movement as a piece of furniture, it doesn't look static and when you sit in the chair it moves and flexes confirming this. A very comfortable chair. Info source: www.modernfurnituredesigners.interiordezine.com
