Artek | 400 Chair

Height 650, Width 770, Depth 770, Seat Height 370, Arm Height 510mm

At the Milan Triennial in 1936 Aalto unveiled his design for an easy chair that deviated sharply from earlier models.

Designer: Alvar Aalto 1935-36

Its wide, sturdy armrests are of bent wood. It is a low-slung and heavy, solidly shaped easy chair. Perhaps for that reason the chair received its "tank" nickname. This handsome chair is unique within the context of Aalto's extensive output.
