The Pirkka Stool was originally conceived as a seat to cool off on after the sauna.‎ Its design draws on traditional Finnish furniture while being perfectly suited to clean modern interiors.‎ Its legs are made of solid birch, its seat composed of two pieces of curved pinewood.‎ The opening in the middle of the seat serves as a handle to easily move the stool.‎ Pirkka Stool comes in two heights and is part of the collection of stools, chairs, and tables that marks the culmination of Ilmari Tapiovaara’s interest in synthesising tradition with modernity.‎

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.‎
