Limited Edition Alvar Aalto Medium Stool 60 in Pumpkin by Artek + Heath

Estimated Production Time3-4 weeks

About

Alvar Aalto’s iconic Stool 60, designed in 1933, is the most elemental of furniture pieces, equally suitable as a seat, a table, storage unit, or display surface. The legs of bent solid wood are mounted directly to the underside of the round seat without the need for complicated connecting elements. Thanks to its geometry, the stool can be stacked to save space in a spiraling tower sculpture. The Stool is manufactured in 42 production steps in Turku, Finland. Heath reimagined Artek’s Stool 60 as a set of nesting stools in colors that are inspired by their classic and refreshed 2018 Coupe dinnerware glazes. Unique to Heath’s design are the custom leg heights, which allow for playful arrangements. When stacked, they reveal a satisfying cascade pattern and rest neatly on the floor. Materials: Solid birch & birch plywood. Dimensions: 14.25"" H, 15"" dia. Edition of 50

About The Maker

Artek was founded in Helsinki in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. Their goal was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means.” The name Artek is a synthesis of "art" and ‘technology’ – concepts central to the international modernist movement that came to prominence in the 1920s. It was Walter Gropius, a key proponent of modernism, who coined the motto ‘art and technology – a new unity.’ Technology was understood to include science and industrial production methods, while the conception of art extended beyond the fine arts to encompass architecture and design. Modernism aimed to achieve a fruitful union of these two spheres. This same aspiration guided the founders of Artek in their naming of the company. In keeping with the radical spirit of its founders, Artek today remains an innovative player in the world of modern design, developing new products at the intersection of design, architecture, and art. The Artek collection consists of furniture, lighting, and accessories designed by Finnish masters and leading international designers. It stands for clarity, functionality, and poetic simplicity.
