Originally designed by Finnish Architect Alvar Aalto in 1933 for Artek, the Aalto Table is a minimal and iconic Scandinavian design. Alvar Aalto was granted a patent for the method of bending wood in 1933: Aalto's invention of the 'L-leg' has made his table series famous. The structural L-bend legs are mounted directly to the underside of the table without the need for complicated connecting elements.

Made from high-quality natural birch from Finland and finished with a top surface of birch, linoleum or high-pressure laminate: the Aalto Table Square is one of the most timeless design icons from the 1930s. The linoleum tabletop is ideal for writing, while the easy-to-clean laminate provides a slightly more robust option, the natural birch is arguably the most alluring. With Aalto's signature L-legs and edge bands of Finnish birch, the table provides natural beauty and warmth, adapting easily between public and private environments in accordance with Alvar Aalto's conception of versatile furniture. 

Thanks to its natural materials, the table will age gracefully over time and last across generations. The refined silhouette of the table will suit any interior space from dining to working. The Table is available in various finishes and also comes as a rectangular, round, and half-round table.

Aalto's architecture is notably Finnish, exhibiting a strong individuality and marked by warm humanity. His buildings derive their aesthetic character from their dynamic relationship with natural surroundings, their human scale, well-executed details, unique treatment of materials, and innovative use of lighting.

Alvar Aalto's name has become significant in the history of design due to his innovations in form and line....
