Drawing inspiration from the beauty of the natural world, the undulating shape of each Aalto piece alludes to the untamed shorelines of Finland's thousands of lakes. The fluid aesthetic reaffirms the deep connection between man and nature while making a statement against the failure of industrial production to meet universal human needs. Designed by Alvar Aalto, 1936.
