Artek’s Aslak chair has been designed to fit well in restaurants.

Crafted from beechwood, the design is stackable, lightweight and inviting, boasting both elegant and versatile qualities.

Its short, rounded armrests allow for it to be pulled up easily to dining tables, whilst its curved seat and backrest allow for hours of comfortable sitting.

Sketched as early as 1946 by Ilmari Tapiovaara, the chair wasn’t manufactured until 1958, where technical advances made mass production possible.

A pioneer of modern Finnish design, Tapiovaara sought to combine plasticity with an economical use of materials.

The Aslak chair is available in five colours: black, white, red, grey and petrol.
