The visionary of renowned Finnish architect/designer Alvar Aalto, the iconic Artek Alvar Aalto Stool E60 turns 80 this year (2013). The stackable, four-legged stool was built using revolutionary techniques at the time and paved the path for subsequent design classics. Six special edition colors taken directly from Alvar's Paimio Sanatorium, the first building he designed that was furnished entirely with his own factory-made furniture, are now available to celebrate this milestone. The yellow of the floors, the green of the walls, the turquoise of the handrails and walls, and the orange, white and black of the furniture of the Paimio Sanatorium inspired this anniversary edition. These four-legged stools consist of lacquered, single colored seats and natural birch legs. Designed in 1933, this timeless design is still one of the most famous classics internationally.
