Artek Tuoli Chair 66
The Tuoli Chair 66 by Artek is one of the popular dining chairs by Aalto with typical L-legs, giving it the characteristic silhouette and making it possible to fix the frame directly at the seat. The Artek Chair 66 was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1935 as part of the permanent collection of the MoMA: "The Chair 66 has a higher back rest which makes it very comfortable and gives the chair its own individual look."
Artek was founded in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar Aalto and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. The business strategy of the company was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means”. The founders of Artek advocated a new kind of environment for everyday life. They believed in a grand synthesis of the arts and wanted to make a difference in architecture and design as well as in town planning.
