What comes to your mind when you hear Alvar Aalto? Of course, wood! In 1923 Aalto founds his first architectural office. He is the protagonist of organic design and experiments with wood shapes. Aalto says, “Form is a mystery that eludes description but gives pleasure to people.” Alvar Aalto is the first plywood cantilever chair. It is exactly this artwork that makes Aalto internationally famous. Aalto’s plywood and plywood design is still modern.
Uniqueness = The brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana
