Product information

Artek foldable table DL81C.

The folding table DL81C from Artek, designed by Alvar Aalto in 1933, is a compact and versatile wooden dining table with a folding extension that effortlessly provides extra space around the table when you need it.

That's why this folding table is an excellent choice for small dining or work spaces. The Aalto folding table has legs and edges made of solid birch wood and the folding table top is finished with soft, matt linoleum, an ideal material for writing tables.

Given his importance as a designer and architect, Aalto considered the development of the L-leg his greatest achievement - he called the L-leg "the little sister of the architectural column". The development of the L-leg was revolutionary because it solved the problem of attaching the legs directly to the table top in a completely new way - the leg could be attached directly to the table top with screws and the result was a solid and simple structure.

Colour: Birch clay / walnut linoleum..

Dimensions: Length 75 - 112.5 cm - Width 75 - Height 74 cm
Material: Birch.

About the designer:

Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) is probably the most famous Finnish architect and designer in the world. In 1921, Alvar Aalto obtained a degree in Architecture from the Helsinki Institute of Technology and began his career as an architect. One of the most important works he was commissioned was the planning of the tuberculosis sanatorium in Paimio, Finland.

This project also marked the beginning of Aalto's career as a furniture designer - in fact, this was the first building planned by Aalto to be completely furnished with furniture designed by Aalto himself - including the lighting. Other important projects completed by Alvar Aalto include the Viipuri Municipal Library, Villa Mairea, La Maison Carré and the Finnish Pavilions for the 1937 Paris and 1939 New York World Exhibitions.
