The ’Alvar and Aino Aalto as Glass Designers' essay by Timo Keinänen MA describes the kind of glass objects produced by the couple and the factors underlying their creation. The 'More Light!’ article by Professor Pekka Korvenmaa PhD examines Aalto’s ingenious use of light and light fittings as a means of bringing indoors to life. The mid-European aspect of Aalto’s interiors is revealed in an article by Ásdís Ólafsdóttir PhD on the interior furnishings of projects by Aalto abroad.

A key section of the book concentrates on furniture design, a broader and more productive part of Aalto’s design work. The essay by Kaarina Mikonranta, Chief Curator of the Alvar Aalto Museum, focuses on the historical side of furniture design and objets d’art from the 1920s.

The book also contains an illustrated catalogue of the best-known designs of Aalto and their variations.
