1940s Alvar Aalto 37 400 Tank Cantilever Birch Lounge Chair by Artek in Finland
Listed for sale is a rare and original Alvar Aalto 37/400 tank chair, designed by Aalto and produced by Artek in Finland. This is a rare and early example, dating to the 1940's. The design itself dates to circa 1937 and was featured in the Milan Triennial around that same time. It came from a noteworthy estate in Williston, Vermont, along with a number of other important Aalto and Saarinen pieces. The chair has just been freshly reupholstered by Forthright NYC, a well known and masterful upholstery shop based in New York and Connecticut. The chair was restored to its original spec, with a light (mint) green Knoll Textiles upholstery. The laminated birch plywood shows gorgeous patina from the past decades. The chair measures 26.5 in tall by 34 in deep by 31 in wide.
