Aalto Alvar design, produced by Artek, 1936.
The armchair 400, designed by Alvar Aalto and better known as Tank, is one of the absolute milestones in furniture design of the 1900s. Alvar Aalto designed the Tank in 1936 for the Milan Triennale. The voluminous chair attracted much attention and was awarded during the fair. The Tank chair was an exception compared to Aalto’s previous pieces of furniture both for its shape and for its premises. Previously Aalto designed all his chairs for a certain architecture destination, but the Tank was designed as commission work for the Triennale.
