The Alvar Aalto Model 406 or 'Paimio Chair' is a timeless masterpiece in the realm of interior design.

It was created by Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto. Known for his organic and innovative approach, Aalto designed this chair in the 1930's.

Interestingly, it was originally created for the Paimio Sanatorium in Finland, which was a tuberculosis sanatorium designed by Aalto. The chair was specifically designed to provide comfort and support for patients while they sat in a reclined position, promoting better breathing and relaxation.

The chair features a distinctive curved birchwood frame, a signature material used by Aalto, that provides both strength and flexibility.  The webbed seat and backrest are upholstered in a durable, woven fabric for comfort. 

With its timeless and functional design, the Model 406 chair has become an icon of modern furniture. It continues to be revered for its elegant aesthetics, ergonomic design, and its ability to effortlessly blend into any interior space.

Needless to say, the chair is still in production and is continuously sought after by design enthusiasts and collectors worldwide.
