New colours for 2018.
Aalto’s iconic Stool 60 is the most elemental of furniture pieces, equally suitable as a seat, a table, storage unit, or display surface. The legs are mounted directly to the underside of the round seat without the need for complicated connecting elements. Thanks to its geometry, the stool can be stacked to save space in a spiralling tower sculpture. Manufactured in 42 production steps at the A-Factory in Turku, Finland, Stool 60 is available in a wide variety of colours and finishes. Several million units of Stool 60 and its four-legged cousin, Stool E60, have been sold, making it one of the most cherished products in the history of design.
This year, Artek’s archive was the inspiration for a new season of colours. Analysing the various finishes which have been used over the decades, certain guiding motives became obvious: the use of dark stains on wooden surfaces as well as the application of luminous greens and strong signal reds or its combinations. The Artek Colour 2018 collection builds upon these historic finds, introducing a powerful combination of a deep walnut stained birch with bright red and pale green lacquers as well as with linoleum in smokey blue, pewter and olive green. It features a selection of Artek’s most beloved chairs, Domus and Chair 69, as well as Stools and round and rectangular Aalto tables in the most popular sizes.
