Artek's Stool E60 showcases all of the iconic features of the Stool 60 only this time with four legs. Available in a variety of statement hues, it's the ideal flexible seating option for lovers of Finnish design.
One of the reasons the E60 is so highly prized is because of its curved L-legs. To create them, cuts are made in the end of a piece of wood, with the slits extending just below the level of the planned bend. Wood veneer strips are then inserted and glued. This simplifies the bending process and increases the stability of the component. Aalto called the L-leg “the little sister of the architectural column,” and its arrival announced a break with longstanding traditions of furniture production. Patented by Aalto in 1933, this technique meant that the warm, organic qualities of wood could be used to form stable hardwearing designs. Its system of standard components enabled the creation of more than 50 versatile products.
