The Aalto Model 401 armchair was first designed by Alvar Aalto in 1932. After the success of armchair 402, Aalto recreated the familiar cantilevered shape to produce its high-backed cousin. A slightly tilted back provides support for your head and neck. Slender side panels near the head promote relaxation by slightly reducing peripheral vision and thus minimizing distractions. Pair this armchair with your favorite upholstery fabric and achieve ultimate happiness for years to come with Aalto's timeless design.
