product description

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.

Fabric Description :
Remix
 : 90% New wool worsted, 10% Nylon, plain weave, highly durable and good abrasion.
Hallingdal - 70% new wool & 30% viscose, with great durability. The range consists of either a one-colour or two-colour mix creating a wide selection.
Steelcut Trio- 90% new wool & 10% nylon. Three contrasting yarns in each colourway create an extensive tonal range. Rich in texture and very hard wearing.
