It kind of surprise me, that many chairs I like are designed by architects : Alvar Aalto, Charles Eames and Marcel Breuer. Are these architects sharing a big love for plywood or is this just coincidence ? I got few questions by email asking about the quality of plywood ( material we also use for our Rafa-kids furniture )  I though I would pick up some old design classics and some new ones to show how beautiful this materials is. I think its a timeless material, easy to work with and with a high quality attributes. I picked up some of my favorite pieces, but there is so much more out there! Enjoy!
