Product description

The Aalto Table conveys a relaxed familiarity that resists categorisation. Whether used for dining, working, or playing, the table retains its character while offering endless possibilities. In accordance with Alvar Aalto’s conception of versatile furniture, it moves naturally between public and private spheres.

The Finnish birch from which Aalto tables are made boasts a natural beauty and radiates warmth; environmentally friendly, it will age gracefully over time. As with all Aalto products, the Aalto Table continues to be fabricated semi-industrially, according to strict criteria and with a high proportion of handcraftsmanship.

Concept

The table is a plane for many social interactions, from eating to playing. A meeting place, it can also be a site of concentration – for working, reading, or drawing.

The Artek collection offers tables in a multitude of shapes, dimensions, materials, and aesthetic designs. The Aalto tables resist categorisation. Employing Aalto’s innovative L-leg system, they are constructed from standardised components. Exceptionally durable, they move naturally between public and private spheres. Also within the range are the Pirkka table and Kaari tables. Uniting beauty, craftsmanship, and their designers’ desire to create versatile, functional furniture, theses tables exemplify the values that have been central to Artek since the beginning.
