Dining Set Designed by Alvar Aalto for Finmar Ltd., Finland, 1929

About the Item

Dining set designed by Alvar Aalto for Finmar Ltd., Finland, 1929. Birch. Stamped. This rare dining set by the Finish design icon Alvar Aalto is characterised by the combination of the chair's distinctive curves and the table's circular form — the round Lazy Susan is reflected in the tabletop's round surface. The structure and warm honey colour of the birch wood are remarkable and generally characterise Aalto's iconic furniture designs. The set is a very early edition retailed by the company Finmar, a wholesale company founded in 1934 to market Alvar Aalto's plywood furniture in the UK. Aalto loved clean curves and bends, which he often integrated into his architecture and furniture designs. He is frequently referred to as "the modern master of the curve and sinuosity".
