Ilmari Tapiovaara Set of Four Pirkka Chairs

About

Ilmari Tapiovaara for Laukaan Puu, Pirkka dining chairs, beech, pine, Finland, 1950s. This set of chairs is designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara. This set was manufactured in the late 1950s. The Pirkka range was designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara as a combination of ideas taken from the Finnish vernacular tradition and of Tapiovaara's earlier experiences in inexpensive knock-down furniture. The pieces were meant for large audience who lived in small- and medium-sized homes and the chairs were referred to as 'peasant type chairs'. The whole range was constructed in solid wood, this particular set features a dark varnished pine and beech structure with ebonized legs. Ilmari Tapiovaara (1914-1999) was trained as an interior designer and at the beginning of his career, during WWII, Tapiovaara designed gear for the Finnish army, meaning that he got used to work to work with very common materials such as local woods and no nails or screws where available. Later in his career he founded his own practice with his wife and had many assignments for schools and universities. Literature: - Korvenmaa, Pekka. Tapiovaara. Salamanca: Tesitex, 1997, p. 134 - 137.
