Lukki Chair by Ilmari Tapiovaara for Artek.


Ilmari Tapiovaara designed the Lukki collection for the student dormitories of the Helsinki University of Technology. Composed of tubular steel with a seat, back, and armrests formed from pressed birch plywood, the Lukki Chair is all-purpose and highly versatile: stackable, lightweight, and hardwearing. The short arms can be pulled close to a table, allowing for studying at a desk and dining, while offering the necessary support and comfort. Lukki means “daddy longlegs” in Finnish, a name as whimsical as the chair is practical.


Price is per item. Handmade to order in Finland.  The Lukki Chair is also available in stone white,  black, and sage green. Please specify when ordering.
