Artek | Stool 60, Mike Meire Anniversary Edition

An Alvar Aalto Design. Reinterpreted by Mike Meire.
By Artek.80 years ago, designer and Artek co-founder Alvar Aalto tested the sturdiness of his new design by throwing the prototype of Stool 60 repeatedly on the floor. Facing successful results, he exclaimed "We'll make thousands of these one day!" He did not know then that Stool 60 would become one of the most iconic figures of modern design, selling millions to date. Throughout 2013, Artek commemorates Stool 60's 80th Anniversary by introducing a series of limited edition stools, designed by a select few architects and designers.The Mike Meire Anniversary Edition plays with Stool 60's plain forms by introducing different color characters, evoking a range of emotions through subtle palette variations. On his idea to give each leg a different color, Meire elaborates, "When moving around the stool, it constantly reveals new perspectives. Like when the day develops from morning to evening, our emotions change accordingly, too," aiming to create a little disorder in Stool 60's classic circular design with endless movement.
