Alvar Aalto 41 - Paimio Scroll Chair

One of Aalto's most notable and intriguing chairs, the 41 Paimio can be found in numerous museums including the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA.) The frame is crafted from laminated birch, which is bent into a closed curve with solid birch cross-rails. Molded from a continuous piece of birch plywood, the seat is offered in two high-shine laminate colors. The springy plywood fixed on a closed frame was Aalto's 1931 brainstorm for making a wooden chair "soft".
