Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) is undoubtedly one of the greatest names in modern architecture and design. His pragmatic yet progressive philosophy and sensuous vocabulary of form have kept Aalto’s designs fresh and original to this day. Aalto believed that good design should be a part of everyday life and his products clearly exemplify this idea.
The asymmetrical, soft wave (“aalto” in Finnish) shape was Alvar Aalto’s signature throughout his creative oeuvre, from architecture to glass. The humane touch combined with technical innovation resulted in designs that have proven timeless.
