Artek Celebrates 100 Years of Tapiovaara

Celebrating 100 years of design this year, Ilmari Tapiovaara has lead an extensive career most noted for capturing the essence of Finnish identity through his work. With a strong belief in functionality, Tapiovaara felt that architecture was the starting point for much of his design work. In addition to chairs and other furniture, mostly intended for public spaces, he designed interiors for hotels.

During his long career Tapiovaara created objects including a range of furniture (pictured below) available at Artek.
