Designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara, 1955
Made in Finland by Artek
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.
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.
