Item description for Alvar Aalto (Archipocket) by Alvar Aalto...

Alvar Aalto

Jyvskyl, 1898 - Helsinki, 1976.

If his first works as an architect (Library of Viipuri 1927-1935; Sanatorium of Piamio, 1928) were marked in the Modernist movement, then in the late thirties, with Villa Mairea (1938), for Mairea Gullichson, he began creating organic works with combined materials that fragmented or curved. In Helsinki (1935), as a furniture designer and part of the Artek foundation, he and his wife Aino Aalto and Mairea Gullichson began producing pieces like the stool with three legs, extraordinarily modest yet carefully treated.
