The 69 Dining Chair for Artekdesigned by Alvar Aalto in 1935, once again demonstrates Aalto's close working relationship with birch and shows his ability to produce smooth curved wooden surfaces. Said to be his favourite chair, the 69 Chair was originally designed for the Viipuri Municipal Library and features his famous L-Leg structure.

The L-Leg structure solved the age-old problem of joining vertical legs to horizontal seat tops. Aalto’s leg, laminated and bent at 90, can be fastened directly to the underside of the top, eliminating any need for any framework or additional support.

The seat base and the backrest of this chair are wider and thus provide superior stability and everyday function.

The colours of the 69 Chair are borrowed directly from Aalto’s Paimio Sanatorium: the yellow of the floors, the green of the walls, and the orange, white and black of the furniture.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
