Aalto 60 stool, 1932

60 stool by Alvar Aalto for Artek.

The stackable 3-legged stool 60 created in 1933 by Alvar Aalto represents the quintessence of functionalist furniture design. 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 the unique bend to the legs that eventually became the distinctive feature of all Aalto furniture. The stool is also manufactured in a four-legged version.

Alvar Aalto’s iconic Stool 60 is the most elemental of furniture pieces, equally suitable as a seat, a table, storage unit, or display surface. The legs are mounted directly to the underside of the round seat without the need for complicated connecting elements. Thanks to its geometry, the stool can be stacked to save space in a spiralling tower sculpture. Manufactured in 42 production steps at the A-Factory in Turku, Finland, Stool 60 is available in a wide variety of colours and finishes. Several million units of Stool 60 and its four-legged cousin, Stool E60, have been sold, making it one of the most cherished products in the history of design.

Also available with an upholstered seat and with white lacquered legs and linoleum seats in various colours: please inquire for details.
