Paimio Armchair 41
Artek
Overview

The iconic Paimio chair by Alvar Aalto was designed for the lung clinic lounges he planned in Paimio, in southwest Finland. The revolutionary armchair had an ergonomic design that allowed the lung clinic patients to enjoy an optimal sitting posture in which they could breathe easily and also enjoy the sun. What makes this chair special is its comfortable sitting and backrest form – which is constructed in one piece – and blends Aalto’s love of abstraction, traditional craftsmanship and natural influence. Today Paimio is available with a white or black lacquered birch veneer seat, against the contrast of a bent birch plywood frame.
