The Pirkka Bench was designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara in 1955. It is part of the Tapiovaara Family Collection by Artek today. The seating furniture speaks a design language typical of Tapiovaara: timeless design, clear lines and with an unmistakable character.
Pirkka combines rustic shapes with the weightless design of the 1950s. Visually, the bench exudes a light elegance despite its production from solid wood, which made it one of the most popular pieces of furniture in Finland soon after its arrival.
The Pirkka Bench is suitable in the dining or living rooms and appears as a stylish, elegant designer object. A total of two people can sit comfortably on the bench. The bench is 120 cm long and 44 cm high.
The seating area on the Pirkka Bench is made from high-quality pine wood and is available waxed, stained or varnished. The frame is made of birch wood. Artek offers the bench in multiple varieties, so you can select between black, brown and honey tones.
