Armchair 42
Artek
Overview

Armchair 42 was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1932 and is easily recognisable as an Aalto design, thanks to the shapely curved and bent birch plywood in both the seat and the frame. The frame is made out of laminated birch and is manipulated to produce a unique cantilevered shape; creating an armchair without straight lines. The seat and back are molded from one piece of birch plywood which is laminated in a high-shine lacquer in black or white, whilst the armrest remain naturally lacquered. The fluidity of this design creates a soft, comfortable place to sit using traditionally rigid materials.
