About

Yrjo Kukkapuro for Haimi, easy chairs model 'Saturnus C', black leather, white fiberglass, Finland, 1960s. Organic shaped 'Saturnus C' lounge chairs by Finnish designer Yrjö Kukkapuro. This chair consist of a moulded plastic shell with thick leather cushions on the upholstery. A nice combination is created by the dark color of the black leather and the white shell. Due to this, the stunning organic lines and the features of this design are beautifully emphasized. The use of these curved forms is very typical for the designs of Kukkapuro. The utilization of plastic is very characteristic of this period. Many famous designers started to eperiment wiith new materials during the sixties and, therefore, the material gained a lot of recognition throughout this time. Yrjo Kukkapuro was born in Viipuri, Finland, in 1933 and is one of the most internationally successful Finish designers. After his graduation from the Institute of Industrial Arts in Helsinki, he founded his own design office, named Studio Kukkapuro, in 1959. Furthermore, he worked as a teacher and professor from the 1960s until 1990s. Kukkapuro is known for his curvaceous, ergonomic furniture which is also visible in this design.
