Lilla Åland is a real stalwart in the Stolab range and a favourite that has represented excellent Swedish 20th century design on many occasions. Carl Malmsten was inspired by a visit to the Finnström Church on Åland, which contained a number of stick-back chairs lined up. He drew them and after a few of his own adjustments and additions, typical of his own particular style, serial production could commence. Each back pin is grooved at both ends, providing a larger attachment area for the glue, thus increasing durability. The narrowing of the back pins upwards forms a strong, springy and comfortable back support. The hollowed top section further increases comfort. Recessed seat for greater comfort. Reinforcement in the form of a crossbrace between the chair legs. Lilla Åland is also available as an armchair. Supplied ready-assembled. Available in natural lacquer, oil or stain. Design: Carl Malmsten.
