The 64 Bar Chair Lacquered Base 65cm was designed by Alvar Aalto for the brand Artek .
One of the founders of Artek , Alvar Aalto is arguably Finland's most important 20th century designer and a global pioneer of the Modernist movement. He designed the 64 Bar Chair Lacquered Base 65cm , one of the brand's earliest products, in 1935. Aalto's research into bending wood, his passion for clean lines and his commitment to creating furniture that complements its environment, all came together to create this iconic bar stool.
The 64 Bar Chair Lacquered Base 65cm features a simple circular seat and four legs. Constructed entirely in lacquered birch, the legs are moulded from the seat base to curve into their vertical position. The subtle A line of the legs is one of the reasons the stool has such an iconic standing, giving it a soft but robust appearance. A simple footrest completes the 64 Bar Chair Lacquered Base 65cm . Ideal for use in a domestic kitchen or at the bar of a restaurant, this variant of the stool measures 65cm in height and has a diameter of 52cm.
