This lounge version of Ilmari Tapiovaara’s Domus Chair features the same distinctive short yet surprisingly supportive armrests, and is suitable as a relaxing chair in your living room. The Domus Lounge Chair was conceived in 1946 when Tapiovaara and his wife Annikki won a commission to design the interior of the Domus Academica student housing complex in Helsinki. Fueled by their theory that functionalism was conducive to social equality, Tapiovaara designed the Domus Lounge Chair which, over time, achieved popularity far beyond the walls of the Academica. The seat and backrest are made from a single piece of form-pressed birch wood veneer, while the frame is constructed from solid lacquered birch. The chair is then upholstered in a black leather. The chair’s high backrest is extremely supportive. Made in Finland, the Domus Lounge Chair measures 35h x 23.25w x 28”d. It’s made by Artek, a manufacturer represented in MoMA’s collection.
