Exhibition at the Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein (Germany), 27 September 2014 - 1st March 2015


The architect and designer Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) was one of the most important proponents of organic design in the twentieth century. His architecture continues to captivate with its natural materials and sculptural, curved forms. For the Paimio Sanatorium (1933), Aalto designed the first wooden cantilevered chair in 1932 while his Savoy Vase (1936) remains a quintessential symbol of Finnish design.
This exhibition catalogue provides comprehensive insights into Aalto's oeuvre, presenting his most significant buildings, furniture and lighting designs and exploring the inspirations that shaped his work. Key themes are Aalto's dialogue with important artists such as Hans Arp, Alexander Calder, Fernand Léger and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and his extensive international collaborations and activities.
