“Beauty is the harmony of purpose and form.” –  Alvar Aalto, 1928

Finland’s leading international figure in the fields of architecture and design, Alvar Aalto turns 114 today. To honor and celebrate his life  and work ( 1898-1976), Modernica is offering free shipping on our version of his ‘400’ Chair: Modernica’s C-Chair.

This chair design from 1936 which is also known as the ‘Tank’ Chair is an enduring iconic piece of design history. Typically shown in Aalto’s signature zebra print, the C-Chair looks equally handsome in more neutral palettes. A perfect piece for any home or office.
