阿爾瓦阿爾托主要的創作思想是探索民族化和人情化的現代建筑道路。他認為工業化和標準化必須為人的生活服務,適應人的精神要求。阿爾托的創作范圍廣泛,從區域規劃、城市規劃到市政中心設計,從民用建筑到工業建筑,從室內裝修到家具和燈具以及日用工藝品的設計,無所不包。簡潔、實用是芬蘭設計的特點,構思奇巧是芬蘭設計的精髓。芬蘭人特別擅長利用自然資源達到設計目的。Alvar Aalto開辟了家具設計的新道路,在30年代創立了"可彎曲木材"技術,將樺樹巧妙地模壓成流暢的曲線。阿爾托將多層單板膠合起來,然后模壓成膠合板,這些實驗創造了當時最具創新的椅子。

The main creative idea of alva alto is to explore the modern construction road of nationalization and humanity. He believed that industrialization and standardization must serve the people's life and adapt to the spiritual requirements of people.The creation of a wide range, from regional planning and design of urban planning to the city center, from civil building to industrial buildings, from interior design to the design of the furniture and lamps and lanterns, and daily crafts, everything. Simplicity and practicality are the characteristics of Finnish design, which is the essence of Finnish design. Finns are particularly good at using natural resources for design purposes. Alvar Aalto pioneered a new way of furniture design, creating "flexible wood" technology in the 1930s that cleverly molded birch trees into smooth curves. The experiments created the most innovative chairs of the time, when alto glued the layers together and molded them into plywood.
