The Armchair 42 by Artek was originally designed in 1932. The frame is made from laminated birch and is manipulated to produce a unique cantilevered shape; creating an armchair without straight lines. The seat and back are moulded from one piece of plywood which is laminated in a high-shine lacquer in black or white. The Armchair 42 was designed by Alvar Aalto: "The fluidity of this design creates a soft, comfortable place to sit using traditionally rigid materials.
