First produced in 1929 by Alvar Aalto, the 611 Dining Chair is considered a classic of Scandinavian simplicity. The chair brings together a solid birch frame with a woven fabric seat and backrest, with a wide range of colour options to choose from. Designed to offer comfort and practicality, the fabric webbing yields to the sitter, making the chair extremely comfortable. Suitable for almost any environment, the Artek 611 Dining Chair is available in a choice of natural stain or black-stain birch frame and stacks up to five chairs high, making it the ideal choice for those where space is a concern.
As one of the great architects and furniture designers of the 20th century, Finnish designer Alvar Aalto breathed life and warmth into modernism, placing emphasis on "organic" geometry; supple, natural materials; and a respect for human feeling.
