Aalto Chair: The Endless Stories of Alvar Aalto
Alvar Aalto was a storyteller. Each of his transformative works in wood formed a point on a line, each fully realized but never complete.
The object disguises its functionality. Once activated it becomes a place to rest, the user displacing the appearance of the original form that it may afford a very particular kind of sitting. From this vantage, we look back through Alvar Aalto's stories, all the way to the beginning of the chair, and of Aalto himself: in to the forest.
