About the designer:
Born in 1898 in the small Finnish town of Kuortane, architect and designer Alvar Aalto is not only one of Finland’s most celebrated and well-known figures, but one of the most acclaimed architects of the 20th century.
His work can be recognized by a number of elements. For example, his commitment to designs that create a sense of warmth and humanity as opposed to sheer function, or his dedication to the concept of gesamtkunstwerk, literally meaning “a work of art.” Aalto interpreted gesamtkunstwerk as a necessity in all areas of building design, from the structural to the interior’s finishes and furnishings.
