Artek Table 86
The Table 86A by Artek is a larger version of Table 86, a natural birch table featuring various surface options. The Artek Table 86A was designed by Alvar Aalto: "It features a solid birch frame with a structured honeycomb core, which allows the table to be strong as well as lightweight. Accented by birch laminate edge banding, every inch of this table is expertly finished.
Perfect for entertaining a large crowd to accommodating a quaint family meal, the stylish bent wood legs are an Aalto signature providing sturdy structure with elegant lines"
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.
