1930s Pair Early Alvar Aalto Finmar 34 402 Lounge Chairs Artek New Upholstery
Listed for sale is a pair of Alvar Aalto 34 402 Easy Chairs, produced by Finmar for Artek in Finland. This design was showcased at the 1933 Milan Triennial. It has remained an iconic Aalto design. These examples are early original examples, which have just been masterfully reupholstered in off-white Knoll Textiles upholstery by Forthright NYC, as notable and highly skilled upholstery shop based in New York and Connecticut. The chairs are in gorgeous original condition, with nicely patinated frames and beautifully fresh upholstery. The chairs measure 27.5 inches tall by 29 inches deep and 24 inches wide. These came from an estate in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area, which had a number of important modern pieces, along with a very early Aalto 31 chair, which was apparently purchased with these pieces.
The chairs are sold as a pair. The price listed includes both chairs.
