A Domus wooden armchair by Ilmari Tapiovaara

£250.00

LOT 748

Description

A masterpiece of modern furniture design, the Domus Chair was created as part of a series of furniture for the Domus Academica student housing complex in Helsinki.‎ Comfortable enough to allow sitting for long periods of time, the Domus Chair achieved great success internationally, becoming known as “The Finn Chair.‎” The characteristic short arms mean that the Domus Chair can be pulled close to a table, perfect for studying at a desk and dining, while offering the necessary support and comfort.‎ Designed in 1946 by Ilmari Tapiovaara, Domus Chairs have been placed in homes and public spaces around the world ever since.‎ This particular example has been well cared for and comes with some very minor signs of use.

  • The Design / Brand

    Ilmari Tapiovaara (1914-1999) was a renowned Finnish interior architect and designer. In his designs, Tapiovaara always sought to create a humane, well-lit and warm dwelling environment. Tapiovaara’s furniture pieces designed were always part of a whole, with the architecture as their starting point. Of all materials, wood was the closest to Tapiovaara’s heart. The designer admired the works of Alvar Aalto and wanted to carry on Aalto’s ideas in his own design work. This was evident in applying wood to the idiom of functionalism and industrial production and in the fact that Tapiovaara adopted the principle of social equality of functionalism. Tapiovaara was also a teacher at the department of interior design at the Institute of Applied Arts and at the Helsinki University of Technology, where he sought to reform teaching towards industrial product design with the aid of international examples.
