Crinolette Armchair

Designed By

Ilmari Tapiovaara, a Finnish furniture and textile designer, designed the Crinolette Armchair in 1962. Tapiovaara was interested in constructing chairs without any metal because of the shortage during world war II. The wooden Chair features a spoked back attaching the seat to an angled, curved rail. Crinolette Armchair was inspired by the structured hoops women used to wear underneath their dresses.
