—01. Aalto 60 Stools.

Words

"Since the foundation of Artek in 1935, some 8 million Aalto stools have been sold worldwide. A few years ago Artek started to collect old Aalto chairs from flea markets, schools, elderly people's homes and garages. Artek wanted to give these classics a new lease on life, an original opportunity to tell their story. They are called the 2nd Cycle. Sustainable 2nd Cycle items are part of Artek's environmental strategy."

Alvar Aalto Desk by Artek

—01. Made in Sweden.

eBay doesn't usually turn up too many good vintage Aalto pieces, but this desk recently popped up online. The age and wear is just about perfect, the wood having turned a beautiful golden colour. It's a good size for a small apartment and it's difficult to find a small desk with useful built-in storage.
