Aalto bench 153B, birch.

The Artek's Bench 153B is a design classic by Alvar Aalto from 1945. Although it dates back to 1945  Bench 153B  continues to charm you with its simple and streamlined elegance. The sofa's airy seat is made of solid birch and rests on Aalto's signature design, the L-legs. The stylish 153 sofas are a nice addition to the dining room, hallway, bedroom and dressing room.

Created by bending a piece of birch to a 90° angled angle, the L-leg attaches directly to the chair, achieving Aalto's signature streamlined and simple aesthetic.

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 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.
