Tapiovaara was a great admirer of Alvar Aalto’s work and wanted to create products based on the same ideological premises. He embraced the principle of social equality of functionalism, and felt that architecture was the starting point of his design work.

The Pirkka series is a simple yet elegant collection of chairs, stools, benches and tables. It features a brown stained solid pine wood seat with a black stained solid birch frame. The stool is offered in two heights, 13.8″ & 17.3″.

llmari Tapiovaara was one of the greatest interior architects and designers of his era. With the mind of an explorer and a soul of a craftsman, Tapiovaara was always seeking for new solutions to improve everyday objects. During his long career Tapiovaara created dozens of iconic objects loved by the public. He was revered as a master of characteristic and human objects and surroundings who captured the essence of Finnish identity. Ilmari Tapiovaara was awarded a total of six gold medals at the Milan Triennials as well as many other important awards throughout his career.
