The High Chair K65, an Alvar Aalto design from 1935, is distinguished by its long legs that are an example of the designer’s “L-leg” innovation that was developed in collaboration with furniture manufacturer Otto Korhonen. As a continuation of Aalto’s experimentation with bending wood, the duo created the L-leg with a process that involved making slits in the wood, and inserting and gluing wood veneer strips. The low back of the K65 offers just the right amount of back support, while its curved rail acts as a footrest. Designed to be used as seating for high-top tables and bar counters, this high chair is constructed from solid birch and birch plywood. Seat surface finishes offered include a lacquered birch, white laminate and black linoleum. Made in Finland by Artek, the High Chair K65 stands 27.5” high (including backrest), with a 15”diamater seat. Some assembly required. Both Alvar Aalto and Artek have work in MoMA’s collection.
