Alvar Aalto

Aalto is a Finnish architect and designer who placed emphasis on the organic geometry and the respect for human feeling. He once said “We should work for simple, good, undecorated things.” His style is simple, straight forward, modern yet warm and comfortable. Aalto is one of my all time favorite designers.

Architecture,” he said, “must have charm; it is a factor of beauty in society. But real beauty is not a conception of form…it is the result of harmony between several intrinsic factors, not the least, the social.” Aalto’s intention was to create integrated environments to be experienced through all the senses, and to design furniture that would be at once modern, human and specifically Finnish.”- from
