Artek’s all-black collection of tubular steel chairs comprises Chair 23 and Lounge Chair 26 by Alvar Aalto, and side table 606, originally designed by Aino Aalto as a stool. In accordance with Aalto’s ideology, the chairs are completely devoid of superfluous detail. They are perfectly suited for private and public spaces alike.
Aalto designed Lounge Chair 26 in 1932, but only a prototype was produced back in the 1930s. The design of the chair combines the curved arc typical to Aalto with a strictly minimalist frame structure.
