A low-lying rendition of the iconic 81C Dining Table, this version of the table replicates the Finnish designer's exacting vision for the full size down to the most minute of details, with the exception being the legs, which are shortened for the use of children. The generously proportioned table top remains the same size as its larger sibling, while the celebrated leg curving techniques employed in its production are no different. The table is available in a range of three distinctive colourways, that again replicate the finishes in the main line, making them ideal for placement alongside one another. A range of children's furniture is available from Artek.
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.
