Artek | 60 Stool
Stool No.60, one of the clearest representations of functional furniture design, was first presented at London's Fortnum & Mason's department store in 1933.
Designer: Alvar Aalto
In its simplicity it consists of three L-shaped legs, whose manufacturing technology was patented, and a circular seat. The secret of its success lies in its legs' unique bends, quality and finishing. When testing the durability of his famous stool, Aalto hurled it to the floor and shouted, "We'll sell thousands of these!" In this respect Aalto was mistaken; more than 1.5 million Aalto stools have been sold all over the world.
