153 bench, 1935

153 bench by Alvar Aalto for Artek.

Artek stands for art and technology. The Finish company is renowned as one of the most innovative contributors to modern design. They stand out for the clean lines, quality and longevity of their products, all made using a combination of traditional craftsmanship and new techniques.

Bench 153 is lightweight, versatile, and equally at home in the public and private spheres. The seat is composed of solid birch wood and features vertical recesses that make the bench light and easy to move. Combining strength with the warm organic qualities of Finnish birch, Bench 153 pairs naturally with other members of the L-leg family. Thanks to Aalto’s ground-breaking L-leg system, the legs can be mounted directly to the seat without the need for complicated connecting elements. Designed by Alvar Aalto in 1945, Bench 153 is a late and much-beloved addition to the L-leg collection.
