Alvar Aalto Paimio 41 Chair for Arket in Black

4,500.00

This is an amazing and rare early Paimio 41 chair by Alvar Aalto for Arket. This piece is from the estate of the great composer Gary Geld and is in excellent condition. The laminated birch frame is bent into a unique closed curve supported by solid birch cross-rails. The idea of fixing plywood onto a closed frame was Aalto's 1931 brainstorm for making a wooden chair "soft" and as a result this wooden chair has a springy quality.
