915 Side Table

By Artek


  • Description

    This natural birch side table uses a simplistic design to create a table that is modern yet timeless. The laminated birch legs are bent into a closed curved formation which is a departure from the classic L-shaped legs. The top and bottom shelf are made from molded plywood and show-off slightly turned up edges to keep items from haphazardly falling off the sides. Designed by Aalto in 1932, this design was original created for the Paimio Sanatorium but was later added to Aalto's permanent furniture collection.

  • Designer
    Alvar Aalto

    Undoubtedly the most celebrated and influential genius of Scandinavian design, Aalto's (1898-1976) work stretches from furniture to architecture and city planning, from art glass to light fittings. His most famous buildings include the Paimio hospital in Finland, the Viipuri library in todays Russia, the Finlandia Hall in Helsinki and the Essen Opera House in Germany.

    Aalto was strongly influenced by the organic shapes of Finnish nature and both his world famous Savoy vase, his folding screen and the Paimio chair share their curving shapes with many of his buildings. Aalto was a great innovator of new manufacturing techniques for wooden furniture, a material he always preferred before steel because of its more humane character. His experiments with the bending of wood resulted in a series of unique and best selling furniture designs, most of them still in production by Artek, the company Aalto co-founded in 1935. His career lasted for six decades, from the 1920s to the 1970s.
