Why is it Special?

Alvar Aalto's iconic Stool 60 is the most elemental of furniture pieces, equally suitable as a seat, a table, storage unit, or display surface. Born of modernist ideals and Finnish innovation, its great legacy and continued relevance owe much to Alvar Aalto's original vision for a universal object made entirely from native birch. Remaining in continuous production since 1933, Stool 60 has barely changed in either material or form, yet it continues to transcend both time and fashion.

With this minimum of components Stool 60 is flat-packed, making transport both economical and ecological. Through the timber's individual features and natural beauty, each stool gains its own unique character, developing a rich patina and ageing with grace over the years.
