Armchair 402

Armchair 402
by Artek

Designed by
Alvar Aalto
for Artek 1933

Armchair 402 is a masterpiece of modernist furniture design, first presented by Alvar Aalto at the Milan Triennale in 1933. The frame cantilevers a cushioned seat, providing modern and comfortable seating. The slightly tilted back of Armchair 402 allows for gentle relaxation while still remaining in an upright position. Since wood changes over time, the armrests are formed from a single piece that is then split in half, ensuring that as the chair ages, it remains perfectly balanced.
