Alvar Aalto (Finland 1898-1976)

Rare x4 Model 60 stacking stools. 1930s. Finmar.

Finmar labels to the underside on three of the stools (the other shows evidence of where the label once was).

Four great original examples of Aaltos model 60 stools – Each has a great colour and shows patina of wear and tear as would be expected and hoped for. The Finmar labels are recognised evidence of them being early edition genuine 1930s stools.

Ilmari Tapiovaara (Finland, 1914-1999)

Solid lacquered beech & pine wood

‘Pirkka’ series table and stool, Laukaan Puu. 1950s

The Pirkka range was designed by Finnish interior architect and designer Ilmari Tapiovaara in 1955 for Laukaan Puu. The design alludes to the forms of Finnish rustic furniture.  Tapiovaara was always seeking for new solutions to improve everyday objects. During his long career, Tapiovaara created dozens of iconic objects loved by the public. Tapiovaara is especially revered as a master of characteristic and human objects and surroundings. The designs of Ilmari Tapiovaara have proved their quality by remaining a part of our daily lives as interesting, still relevant, functional and aesthetic pieces of furniture.
