Alvar Aalto invented a bending technique for the legs involving cutting a fan pattern in a piece of solid birchwood, inserting thin pieces of plywood and glue into the grooves and bending the legs into shape while applying heat resulting in a very strong structure. E60 can be used, not only as stool but also as a side-table, grouped together or when not in use, stacked for easy storing. Comes unassembled in flat-pack.
