Chair 69 is one of Artek’s most popular dining chairs. The model was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1935 and it has been continuously in Artek’s selection ever since.

Chair 69 was originally designed for the Viipuri Municipal Library. In 1927 Aalto won the planning competition for the library and the building was inaugurated in 1935. Beside planning the building, he also designed lamps, details of the interiors and furniture like the chair 69 and the iconic Stool 60.

The 69 chair features a slightly wider base and backrest to provide superior stability and everyday function. Built from high-quality materials, the chair's legs and back are made from natural birch. Chair 69 has L-leg structure, which makes possible to attach the legs of the dining chair directly to the seat.

The colours are taken directly from Aalto’s Palmio Sanatorium (1929–1933), considered to be one of his most important buildings: the yellow of the floors, the green of the walls, the turquoise of the handrails and walls, and the orange, white and black of the furniture.

have been promoting the synthesis of Art and Technology since 1935, giving them the status of Nordic design legends

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.
