About

Yrjö Ilmari Tapiovaara

(Finland, 1914-1999)

Manufactured by Laukaan Puu Finland, late 1950s as a very limited edition.

A dark varnished Pine and beech wood structure with green rexine doors and black painted wooden legs.

The Pirkka range by the Finnish interior architect and designer Ilmari Tapiovaara is one of the most popular Finnish furniture ranges qualifying with an almost cult status in the mid-century modern markets. The Pirkka range was designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara in 1955 and it alludes to the forms of Finnish rustic furniture.

With the mind of an explorer and soul of a craftsman, Ilmari Tapiovaara was always seeking for new solutions to improve everyday objects. Tapiovaara is especially revered as a modernist master of characteristic, human objects and surroundings.

Although Pirkka series furniture is fairly common to find, the sideboards are what can only be described as ‘rare as hen’s teeth’; possibly one of the rarest of Tapiovaara’s designs.
