Made of Aalto's favoured birch wood, the 611 Chair features woven linen seat and back which lend the chair its casual expression. The linen webbing is offered in a range of colours, each offering a distinct character. The webbing's neutral shades complement diverse interiors while the breathable, flexible linen ensures a comfortable sitting experience.
Practical and timeless, this comfortable dining chair is stackable up to five pieces. The Aalto Chair 611 is available with a natural or black lacquered frame.
Artek was founded in 1935 by four young idealists; Aino and Alvar Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. They believed in a grand synthesis of art, architecture, design and technology; and the power it has to transform the way we live. This ambition and the resulting furniture made them one of the forerunners of modern design. Artek is perhaps best known for their Alvar Aalto furniture pieces such as the Stool 60 or Chair 69. But other seminal pieces on their roster include Ilmari Tapiovaara's Kiki Sofa and Enzo Mari's Sedia 1 Chair. The company are also known for their work with contemporary designers, artists and architects including Konstantin Grcic, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and Hella Jongerius.
Artek's iconic Chair 69, designed by Alvar Aalto in 1935, updated with a palette inspired by his famous Palmio Sanatorium project
