Artek’s Armchair 41, also known as the Paimio chair, is one of the most beautiful chairs designed by Alvar Aalto. Its lightness and structural genius are without comparison. Armchair 41 was created as part of the Paimio Sanatorium’s overall project led by Aalto. Instead of using traditional metal tubes, Aalto wanted to use something warmer and more human. With this in mind, Aalto designed in 1931 the Paimio chair, which was manufactured of bent plywood and laminated wood. Selling as a pair. RRP $5500 each
