Crafted entirely from solid wood, Pirkka Chair combines a birch frame with a pine seat and backrest.‎ The solid lines of the pine elements contrast strikingly with the rounded, tapering contours of the frame.‎ 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.‎ Pirkka Chair 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.‎
