A masterpiece of modern furniture design, the Domus Chair was created as part of a series of furniture for the Domus Academica student housing complex in Helsinki. Comfortable enough to allow sitting for long periods of time, the Domus Chair achieved great success internationally, becoming known as "The Finn Chair." The characteristic short arms mean that the Domus Chair can be pulled close to a table, perfect for studying at a desk and dining, while offering the necessary support and comfort. Designed in 1946 by Ilmari Tapiovaara, Domus Chairs have been placed in homes and public spaces around the world ever since.
