About the designer:

As one of the key figures of mid-century Modernism and perhaps Finland's most celebrated architects, Alvar Aalto (3 February 1898 – 11 May 1976) was known for his humanistic approach to Modernism.

For his characteristically Finnish take on architecture, Aalto has become a key reference point for architecture in the Nordic countries.

His commitment to creating a total work of art left many examples of his design genius not only in buildings but also in their interior features, including furniture, lamps, and glassware design.
