Aalto, Alvar

(1898 - 1976)

Hugo Alvar Henrik Aalto (1898 - 1976) was one of the leading architects and designers of Finnish Modernism. His architectural career spans from Classicist buildings in the early 1920s to prestigious international commissions for his Modernist designs in the 1960s/70s. Perhaps his most iconic and influential design was the Functionalist Paimio Sanatorium (1929-33). In his designs for lighting and furniture he was equally influential. Together with his wife Aino he started the Artek company in 1935.
