The 60 Stool stained has been created by Alvar Aalto for the brand Artek. As with all of Aalto's creations, this product mixes progressive aesthetic ideas with a total commitment to practicality. And even though it was created in the 1930s, the 60 Stool stained still impresses with its deceptively simple lines and functional features.
The 60 Stool is available in a range of finishes, and this model comes with a stained finish. This enriches the natural grain of the solid birch used in the stool's construction, while adding a gloss to the surface as well. In terms of form, the 60 Stool stained has a low profile, measuring just 44cm tall. The seat is circular and measures 38cm in diameter, while three birch legs provide ample support for users, whether it is used in children's playrooms or lounge areas.
Several less obvious features make the 60 Stool stained stand out. For instance, the legs are connected to the seat with no additional links, creating an attractive one-piece look. And they are curved inward at the top, adding strength while softening the overall design. Aalto made sure that the stool was simple to assemble, while cushions can be added with ease, allowing users to customise their 60 Stool stained however they wish.
