Description

Domus upholstered lounge chair by Ilmari Tapiovaara for Artek.

Please note: due to the foam used in its construction, this chair is available for contract use only.

The characteristic Domus Lounge Chair was designed, alongside the Domus Chair, for the public spaces at the Domus Academica's student housing.

In the 1940's it was not possible to produce the large veneer seat / back rest element from one piece. Only now is the chair being produced as Tapiovaara originally designed it.

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."

The Domus upholstered lounge chair is available in a range of finishes: natural lacquered birch, black lacqured birch, honey stained birch or natural lacquered oak.
