Design Ilmari Tapiovaara, 1946
Form pressed birch or oak plywood, solid birch or oak
Made in Finland by Artek

He created the now iconic Domus Chair in 1946 as a multipurpose seat for the Domus Academica student housing complex in Helsinki.

The pressed birch plywood seat and back were shaped to provide students comfort, while the stackable solid birch frame meant it could save space in hallways, conference rooms and auditoriums.

As Jukka Savolainen, director of Helsinki Design Museum explained "Tapiovaara wanted good design for everyone. He did Ikea before Ikea, good quality pieces at an affordable price – the same kind of packaging and mass production ideas as Ikea has done."
