Artek Stool 60
The Stool 60 by Artek is a 3-legged stackable stool which represents the quintessence of functionalist furniture design. The Artek Stool 60 was designed by Alvar Aalto: "The simple idea behind this now-classic stool is based on three bent legs and a round seat. The secret of the original Aalto stool´s success lies in its legs´unique bends that eventually became the distinctive feature of all Aalto furniture."
Artek was founded in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar 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.
