Product description

Alvar Aalto’s four-legged Stool E60 is the most elemental of furniture pieces, equally suitable as a seat, table, storage unit, or display surface. Projecting a sense of relaxed familiarity, Stool E60 is equally suited to the home, public buildings, and educational facilities. The legs are mounted directly to the underside of the round seat without the need for complicated connecting elements. Thanks to its geometry, the stool can be stacked to save space in a spiralling tower sculpture.

Concept

The stool is the most elemental of furniture pieces, a part of daily life since time immemorial. Eternally contemporary, the stool provides a surface for seating, storage, and display. Practical, portable, and adaptable, the stool may be moved at will and can fulfil a variety of roles from step to seat. Modest and unobtrusive, in groups, the stool may be used to seat multitudes. Varying in material and design, some stools are made to stack, saving space when not in use. Uniting the values of craftsmanship, durability, and timelessness, Artek’s stools have been among its most iconic and beloved products since the company’s founding.
