In the late 1920s, Alvar Aalto experimented with various forms of innovative manufacturing methods, which also led to the creation of the now world-famous L-shaped leg, which today appears on up to 36 Artek products such as the three-legged 60 stool or the larger four-legged E60 stool can be found. Today the list price in specialist retailers for the 90 D is €696.00. You can save a lot compared to our example.
