Children's Chair N65

Designer: Alvar Aalto

Year: 1935

Children’s Chair N65 boasts clean lines and a simple, elemental structure. The chair models a low rectangular backrest formed from a single piece of birch plywood. Since the backrest follows a slight curve, it forms naturally to the back, offering comfort and support. Created from the original L-leg system of standardised components, Children’s Chair N65 features the recognisable circular seat. Equally suited to homes, public buildings, and educational facilities, it has been part of children’s lives for generations.
