Abstract

Between 1933-39 approximately 75% of all 'Aalto Furniture' was purchased in London, and it assumed a leading role in the specification of modern interiors and architecture. This chapter examines why it was so successful, and why this success, so important in constructing 'Aalto', was later forgoitten.
