The Pirkka Stool was originally conceived as a seat to cool off on after the sauna. Its design draws on traditional Finnish furniture while being perfectly suited to clean modern interiors. Its legs are made of solid birch, its seat composed of two pieces of curved pinewood. The opening in the middle of the seat serves as a handle to easily move the stool. Pirkka Stool comes in two heights and is part of the collection of stools, chairs, and tables that marks the culmination of Ilmari Tapiovaara’s interest in synthesising tradition with modernity.
