Crafted entirely from solid wood, the Pirkka Bench combines a birch frame and pine seat.‎ Bearing a distinctive aesthetic, the sharp lines of the seat contrast strikingly with the rounded, tapering contours of the frame.‎ Inspired by traditional vernacular Finnish furniture, the Pirkka Bench provides a modern interpretation – flexible, informal, and effortlessly suited to contemporary living.‎ Designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara in the 1950s, the Pirkka Bench is a versatile addition to any room.‎

Pirkka marks a temporary return to solid wood for Ilmari Tapiovaara, following his innovative work with tubular steel.‎ The first in the series was the stool, intended by Tapiovaara as the ideal place to sit and cool down after a sauna.‎ The Bar Stool, Bench, and Chair bear the same remarkable aesthetic.‎ Frames are composed of solid birch, while seats and backrests are made from pinewood.‎ The tapering frame and braces provide a charismatic contrast to the solidity and smooth curves of the pine elements.‎ Created in the 1950s, the Pirkka series is inspired by traditional vernacular Finnish furniture, but in a modern interpretation – flexible, informal, and effortlessly suited to contemporary living.‎
