The minimalist Alnus Poster, depicting a simple "pixelated" chair, was created by Tapani Aartomaa for Finnish design legend Yrjö Kukkapuro. Although it might seem logical the other way around, the poster came before the actual, physical chair: graphic designer Artomaa designed the poster in 1993 and only after that did Kukkapuro begin turning it into a seat. Complete with colourful, laminated legs, the corresponding chair is a rare collector's item that was only manufactured as a limited edition of 39 pieces.
The relaunched Alnus Poster is part of a fundraising campaign aiming to develop Irmeli and Yrjö Kukkapuro's studio in Kauniainen, Finland, into a museum. Only a limited batch of 250 posters is available.
