Design by Alvar Aalto.
The 915 side table by Artek is a timeless design classic that Alvar Aalto designed for the Paimio Sanatorium in 1932. The table consists of two birch slat loops and two layers of pressed birch multiplex: the top layer functions as a table top and the bottom as a table particularly useful as a shelf for books and magazines.
The long sides bend gracefully upwards, which - together with the slat loops - gives the design its distinctive, streamlined appearance. The side table 915 is an elegant addition to any living room and bedroom.

About the designer:
