Pirkka Bench design by Ilmari Tapiovaara, 1955.
In the Pirkka collection, rustic forms are combined with the light furniture styles of the 1950's. Pirkka quickly became a hit and grew to be one of the most liked Finnish furniture collections. The small pieces of furniture fitted perfectly into the small post war homes and summer places. The furniture made of solid wood and assembled without screws are also remarkably light. Pair the Pirkka Chair with the matching Pirkka Table.
The Pirkka Chair comes fully assembled and is available in five finishes.
Designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara for Artek, the Pirkka Chair is still sought out over half a century after its inception. The Pirkka range of products, which includes chairs, benches, stools and tables, combines a rustic form with the light furniture styles of the 1950s. The compact form of the Pirkka Chair makes it ideal for confined spaces
