Product Story

Designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara in 1955, the Pirkka Bar Stool exemplifies his design philosophy: making objects that contribute to a warm and human-centric environment.

Drawing on traditional forms, it remains as relevant and functional as ever, and makes an atmospheric addition to the modern interior. The stool's distinctive seat is comprised of two disparate pieces of curved wood, with a dark stain that alludes to rustic furniture design.

Its tapered legs, also in solid wood, contrast the seat with a black stain, and incorporate spindle braces for an instantly recognisable look.

Manufactured by Artek, the Pirkka Bar Stool is available in two heights. Also available is the Pirkka Chair.

  • W.44 x D.28 x H.65 cm.
  • W.44 x D.28 x H.80 cm.

Artek Nordic design legends have been promoting the synthesis of Art and Technology since 1935

Artek was founded in 1935 by four young idealists; Aino and Alvar  Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. They believed in a grand synthesis of art, architecture, design and technology; and the power it has to transform the way we live. This ambition and the resulting furniture made them one of the forerunners of modern design. 
Artek is perhaps best known for their Alvar Aalto furniture pieces such as the Stool 60 or Chair 69. But other seminal pie...
