Finnish icons! Sold as pieces. Beautiful work by well known Finnish designer Alvar Aalto - model X601 with cognac brown leatherseat and showcases the wonderful X-Leg or Fan leg innovation. Really nice as a group of four together or as a single stool. The X601 stools were designed in 1954 at Artek Oy, Finland.  Measures of each stool: 45x45x45 cm. Seat height 45 cm.

Alvar Aalto (1898–1976) is one of the greatest names in modern architecture and design. He was born in Kuortane, Finland and noted for his humanistic approach to modernism. He studied architecture at the Helsinki University of Technology from 1916 to 1921, and returned to Jyväskylä, where he opened his first architectural office in 1923.  Aalto's furniture design is easily recognized by the unique method of bending wood he patented; most famously, the stackable Stool 60 from Artek. Often called the "L-leg" as an ode to its distinctive shape, it can be found on most of his furniture forms.
