The Paimio Chair, the best-known piece of furniture designed by Aalto, is named for the town in southwestern Finland for which Aalto designed a tuberculosis sanatorium and all its furnishings.

Used in the patients’ lounge, the angle of the back of this armchair was intended to help sitters breathe more easily.

Designing often necessitates considering the aesthetic, functional, economic and sociopolitical dimensions of the design object & design process.
