Artek Mademoiselle Rocking Chair

mademoiselle rocking chair
Design Ilmari Tapiovaara, 1956
Solid Birch seat, back & frame
Made in Finland by Artek

Tapiovaara was a great admirer of Alvar Aalto’s work and wanted to create products based on the same ideological premises. He embraced the principle of social equality of functionalism, and felt that architecture was the starting point of his design work.

The Mademoiselle rocking chair is a great example of these principles with a low profile, high back and long, slender rockers making it nice to sit in as well as to look at. The Mademoiselle rocker features a solid Birch seat, back and frame and is offered stained black or painted white. Also available as lounge chair.

llmari Tapiovaara was one of the greatest interior architects and designers of his era. With the mind of an explorer and a soul of a craftsman, Tapiovaara was always seeking for new solutions to improve everyday objects. During his long career Tapiovaara created dozens of iconic objects loved by the public. He was revered as a master of characteristic and human objects and surroundings who captured the essence of Finnish identity. 

Ilmari Tapiovaara was awarded a total of six gold medals at the Milan Triennials as well as many other important awards throughout his career.
