Ilmari Tapiovaara (Finland, 1914-1999)

model 32, ‘Wilhelmiina’ chair

Oy Wilh. Schumann AB Finland 1960s.

The Wilhelmiina 32 chair was designed in 1959. The legs are constructed in laminated birch with “fountain bend”. The suspended seat and back are in black lacquered moulded plywood.

The design is reminiscent of Alvar Aalto, whom Tapiovaara counted as a strong influence. In World War II Tapiovaara designed dugouts and field furniture to the Finnish Army, a challenging task given that only local wood and simple tools could be used, and no nails or screws were available.

Manufacturers label to the underside.
