Artek Aalto chair 611, black

An undeniable icon

The favorite chairs allow for comfort in casual evenings but offer posture for everyday lunch moments. Artek's clear-lined Aalto 611 chair is a timeless favorite: it is one of the first pieces of furniture designed by Alvar Aalto and has been in production since 1929. The seat's flexible fabric webbing and solid birch frame create a natural ensemble. These Aalto chairs last time and use in terms of both quality and design. In addition, these classics are easily stackable.

Vitra Panton chair, white

Unique design

Designed by Verner Panton, the Panton chair is a well-known classic that represents experimental 1960's design. The seat, made of durable and matte polypropylene, is comfortable to sit in even during long dinner conversations, and the chair is also suitable for outdoor use. Panton chairs make an impressive impact in a group, but also function as an eye-catching sculptural element individually alongside other chairs.
