The Säynätsalo Town Hall is one of architect Alvar Aalto’s most significant works. It enjoys a unique position in the history of modern architecture. The Säynätsalo Town Hall is a building with many functions: municipal administration (until 1993), library, residential spaces, business premises and guest rooms.
Aalto designed the town hall as a total work of art, as evidenced by the details and furniture designed especially for the building. Because of its architectural importance, the Säynätsalo Town Hall and its inner courtyard were protected by a building preservation order in 1994.
Alvar Aalto’s childhood white table – the Tavolo Bianco – was large. Possibly the largest table in the world – and the table will continue to grow. On that white table, Aalto made his life work. Tavolo Bianco creates a framework and large tables for working, studying and dreaming for students, researchers, and anyone interested in Aalto’s work.
