Alvar Aalto 41 - Paimio Scroll Chair

Aalto's intriguing and most famous chair, the 41 Paimio armchair can be found in numerous museums including the Museum of Modern Art. The frame is laminated birch bent into a closed curve with solid birch cross-rails. The seat is molded from one piece of birch plywood and 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".
