Pirkka Chair

Designer: Ilmari Tapiovaara

Year: 1955

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.
