Siena Blanket by Alvar Aalto for Artek286 001 02
Produced in super soft, supremely warm Merino wood, the Siena Blanket begins with the meeting of function and aesthetics. Each wool blanket features Alvar Aalto's 'Siena' pattern, originally designed by in 1954 and named after the city in Alto's beloved Italy. Intended as a pattern for fabrics, Aalto wanted to see the print used freely for different purposes. And Artek has done just that. The architectural and light Siena pattern was the first introduction in Artek's 2013 'ABC Collection' - a series of small objects intended to naturally complement the Artek furniture collection.
