The design, which has been available in birch veneer, white laminate and black linoleum, is now also available in orange, green, yellow, turquoise, black and white lacquer, inspired by the colors used in Alto's Paimio Sanatorium.
If you have ever been involved in the debate over whether or not it's a sacrilege to paint vintage furniture, you might be interested in the concept store launched in 2011 called Artek 2nd Cycle, which showcases the company's own reclaimed vintage pieces.
