Finnish designer Ilmari Tapiovaara was born in Hämeenlinna, Finland in 1914, and went on to train with Le Corbusier and work using Modern and functionalist sensibilities. Seen as a pioneer in the rise of industrial design post-WW2, Tapiovaara’s designs remain incredibly popular to this day.

Please note: This is a pre-owned vintage design and is completely one-of-a-kind, therefore it may show signs of wear proportional with age. The utmost effort has been made to accurately showcase each unique intricacy and characterful imperfection; our photography is unretouched and this piece is sold as seen.
