Alvar Aalto (Finland 1898-1976)

Five model 612 chairs and a drop-leaf dining table. 1940s-50s.

A dining set composed of five model 612 chairs. Solid and laminated birch with vinyl webbed back and padded seat. “Y-legs” of bent massive birch. Designed in 1947. Illustrated in Alvar Aalto, Leonardo Mosso, p.76. Produced by Artek in the early 1950s.  (These were purchased from first owner).

The chairs come with a birch drop end leaf table. The table is a 1940s production with beaded edging (Possibly a Swedish production).

With character! Some general wear and tear (the vinyl, once white has discoloured to a nice even cream colour)  – signs of constant use.
