Product description

Clean lines and a simple structure define the design of Chair 65. A low, rectangular backrest is formed from a single piece of birch plywood and has a slight curve that forms naturally to the back, offering comfort and support. The height of the backrest allows for the chair to be pushed under a table or desk.

The distinctive circular seat and L-shaped legs are part of Alvar Aalto’s standardised system of components. Available in a variety of colours and finishes, Chair 65 also has a smaller sibling, Children’s Chair NE65, which is suitable for children.

Concept

While the chair is primarily for sitting, it must support a range of functions; it may be used for working, dining, or resting, for short periods or long durations. A good chair is portable and can be moved from desk to dining table to kitchen. It may be displayed singly or as part of a group, around a table or on its own. Artek chairs support the sitter, assisting good posture and providing ergonomic comfort. Aesthetically appealing, durable, and adaptable, they rise to the challenges of contemporary living.
