Concept

“The fluorescent orange that I chose for Aalto Stool 60 is the simplest way to draw attention to this ultra simple piece of classic minimalism which is well known that often people don't notice it any more . This high-visibility paint is used most often in emergency , rescue , and warning situations and rarely in the interior design space. Aalto was a great lover of bright colours, and I can imagine that he too might have been fascinated by these extreme hues.” – Tom Dixon
