  • Q & A
Arguably the best-known piece of furniture designed by Alvar Aalto, the Paimio Scroll chair is an icon of functionalism. Named after the town in Finland for which Aalto designed a tuberculosis sanatorium in 1931, Paimo was used in the patients' lounge. The angle of the vented back allows the sitters to breathe more easily. Today, the design is not only sought after for its rich history but it's relevancy and comfort for the modern user. The sculptural chair seems to test the limits of bent plywood manufacturing. 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 spring birch plywood on a closed frame, the Paimio Scroll Chair was Aalto's brainstorm for making a wooden chair "soft".
