Known for everything from architecture and furniture to textiles and glassware, Finnish designer Alvar Aalto’s most iconic piece may be the beloved Stool E60. Originally introduced back in 1933, the stackable design stands the test of time thanks to its functional simplicity while its bent legs have even gone on to become a trademark of all Aalto-designed furniture. Now Alto’s company, Artek, is introducing an exclusive version of the stool for Japanese retail giant MUJI. A four-legged version — which Aalto introduced in 1934 — of the tri-legged original, MUJI’s Stool E60 comes with the piece’s prototypical birch veneer construction and employs a two-toned seat that couples a matching base with a lacquered brown top.

Exclusive to select Japanese MUJI flagships and the Japanese MUJI web store, the limited-edition take on the Stool E60 is available now for ¥24,900 JPY (approximately $217 USD) while supplies last.
