Alvar AaltoÕs L-leg is considered to be his most important gift to the world of furniture design. The L-leg, which he developed in the early 1930s, solved the old problem of attaching vertical legs to a horizontal top. Previously, there were two solutions: cut holes in the table top and glue the legs to the holes, or join the legs to a frame and attach the frame to the underside of the table. AaltoÕs curved L-leg bent from a vertical to a horizontal position so it could be attached with screws. The new technique eliminated the need for complicated joinery, and enabled formerly shape-marring joints to appear attractive. Today, L-leg furniture is still popular, although few are aware that it was created by Alvar Aalto.
