Bespoke Linoleum Top Desk
by Ilmari Tapiovaara

£1,700

Description

A petite desk by Ilmari Tapiovaara.
The desk was bespoke designed and made for an educational institution in Finland in the 1950s.
Only a small quantity of this desk were made as the design did not go into commercial production. Therefore, the piece is rare but also, thanks to its materials, construction and proportions, extremely usable.
The frame and screw-in legs are made from solid birch whilst the top is inlayed with a warm burnt-orange-brown linoleum.
In very good vintage condition.
