High Chair 64 by Alvar Aalto

Nature is marvelous and everything it gives us, but man has succeeded taming it and transforming it, turning it into unexpected little miracles just by the power of his imagination. That is what happens with all great artists, designers included. Alvar Aalto is a great designer who was famous back in the 1930s but whose work is still very much appreciated. This is because he made some gorgeous things by bending nature in order to fit his vision of it. And one amazing result of his work is this High Chair 64 by Alvar Aalto that he designed in 1935 but it is still manufactured in Finland by Artek.

This high chair looks great and is a bit different than a simple bar stool, as you can also use it near a normal table. The look of this chair is elegant and stylish, bringing glamour to any home. The high chair has a nice round seating on top of four wonderfully curved legs. They are obtained by bending the hard wood under high temperatures and after that adding some natural lacquer to the surface. You can choose the material for the chair from birch veneer, black or red linoleum or white laminate, all of them available. The price for this item is $575 and you can order it online from Hive Modern.
