Originally designed by Alvar Aalto for Artek in 1936, the 115 Umbrella Stand is a timeless piece that would lend a touch of classic design to any home.
With a pan to catch any falling drops of rainwater and a practical triangular shape, the 115 Umbrella Stand is as functional as it is beautiful. Crafted from solid birch, the two hand-bent lamella loops that unite the piece require the strength of two people to bend and are an excellent example of Aaltos innovative use of bent wood. Over its lifetime the brass accents will develop a rich patina of its own, bringing a new dimension to the elegant design.
Alvar Aalto was one of the founding members of Finnish manufacturer, Artek, and embraced strong individuality with focus on designing predominantly for humanity, creating functional and dynamic pieces for public and personal spaces alike.
