The Mademoiselle rocking chair by Ilmari Tapiovaara is an elegant designer classic in Finnish furniture design tradition. Tapiovaara designed the rocking chair far back in 1956. Today it is produced by the Finnish company Artek as part of the Tapiovaara Family Collection.
Rocking and club chairs have always been important pieces of furniture in Finnish design history. Throughout his career, Ilmari Tapiovaara designed many reinterpretations of this piece of furniture. Modern, yet simultaneously graceful and comfortable, it was primarily the seating furniture with the elegant name Mademoiselle that became Finnish design icons of the 1950s.
In keeping with the name Mademoiselle, the rocking chair by Ilmari Tapiovaara is extremely delicate and elegant. Soft and long lines as well as economical use of materials make Mademoiselle a visual highlight. At the same time, the armchair offers maximum functionality. Solid birch wood guarantees high stability and longevity.
