ALVAR AALTO Pair of 'Tank' armchairs, model no. 400, circa 1935-1936 Bent birch laminated plywood, fabric. Each: 70.5 x 79 x 85.6 cm (27 3/4 x 31 1/8 x 33 3/4 in.) Manufactured by O.y. Huonekalu-ja Rakennustyötehdas A.b., Turku, for Artek, Finland.
Designer Alvar Aalto's bent plywood furniture and curvy vases have continued to influence humanistic, Scandinavian design today. Every detail best fits the user. "Building art is a synthesis of life in materialized form. We should try to bring in under the same hat not a splintered way of thinking, but all in harmony together."
