HIGH CHAIR K65
Artek’s high chair K65 was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1935. The chair features birch legs and a low back made of bent birch plywood. K65 is a timeless classic that will charm in any home and office.
The chairs revolutionary L-leg structure was a major boost for all the modern Scandinavian design. The same technique is still in use: a piece of straight, solid birch was sawn open at the end in the direction of the fibres, forming the shape of a fan. Thin pieces of plywood were then glued in the grooves. This structure makes it possible to bend the wood by heating or steaming the desired angle and when dry, it will have a very strong texture that can be easily joined to the seat.
