Armchair 406

Alvar Aalto, 1939


Armchair 406 combines simple elegance with comfort. Since wood changes over time, the armrests are formed from a single piece that is then split in half, ensuring that as the chair ages, it remains perfectly balanced. The cantilevered birch frame and linen webbed seat offer a high degree of comfort and relaxation; the natural materials yield in response to the body while simultaneously providing strength and stability.
