Alvar Aalto – Finnish designer, 1898-1976
Finnish designer and architect Alvar Aalto was known to treat each building as a work of art—down to the details of his interiors, furniture, and lighting—ultimately striving for a more beautiful mode of home life. Recognized as one of the most influential architects of Nordic Modernism, Aalto was inspired by the relationship of architecture to the physical and cultural landscape, and thus formed a body of work that reflected the growth and industrialization of his home country during the early 20th century.
