Armchair 406  by Alvar Aalto for Artek.


Armchair 406 combines simple elegance with comfort. Since wood changes over time, the armrests are formed from a single piece that is then split in half, ensuring that as the chair ages, it remains perfectly balanced. The cantilevered birch frame and linen webbed seat offer a high degree of comfort and relaxation; the natural materials yield in response to the body while simultaneously providing strength and stability.


Price is per item. Handmade to order in Finland. This listing is for the variant in Natural Linen.
