Product information

Artek Aalto table 84, 120 x 120.

The Artek tables are based on different combinations of Alvar Aalto's L-legs and table tops. Aalto first introduced the curved L-leg in 1933 and it became a standard part of his furniture designs. Given his importance as a designer and architect, Aalto regarded the development of the L-leg as 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.

Thanks to its timeless and simple design, this table also comes into its own in contemporary home furnishings. This rectangular dining table is made of solid birch wood. You can order the table in various versions. The base of each is made of birch wood, but for the finish of the table top you can choose from birch veneer, laminate or linoleum.

Color: Birch, Black linoleum, White laminate.
Dimensions: Length 120 - Wide 120 - Height 74 cm.
Material: solid birch frame, table top in Birch, Linoleum and Laminate.

Note: will be delivered flat-packed.

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 major projects completed by Alvar Aalto include the Municipal Library of Viipuri, Villa Mairea, La Maison Carré, and the Finnish pavilions for the 1937 Paris and 1939 New York World Expositions.
