Artek Armchair 401
Alvar Aalto, 1933
The high-back cantilever Armchair 401 offers maximum comfort. The frame contains a sprung seat, while the back is slightly tilted to provide support for the head and neck. The minimalist wings adjoining the headrest contribute to the distinctive design. 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.
