Physical description
Curved back set against flat member which curves around to act as arm rests, shaped/moulded seat.
This highly functional design by Tapiovaara, also known as the Domus chair, is constructed of simple parts that were easily mass-produced. The innovative use of moulded, laminated plywood for the seat recalls Charles and Ray Eames’s landmark LCW chair of the previous year.
