Product description

Ilmari Tapiovaara designed this charming side table for an exhibition of the Finnish Society of Applied Arts in 1940. The organic style, particularly discernible in the cloud-shaped table top, make the Tee-Tee Table a forerunner of the new styles of decorative furniture that would emerge in the 1950s. The Tee-Tee Table is made of a pressed birch plywood top and solid birch legs.

Concept

The low table serves any number of functions, from a place to set down coffee or leave small items to a storage or display surface. Low tables may be drawn alongside or within reach of beds, sofas, and lounge chairs, positioned at the centre or periphery of an interior. Drawing the gaze down, the low table can provide a focal point, a plane around which furniture may be grouped; alternatively, the low table is a superb supporting player. The Artek collection showcases a diverse selection of low tables and celebrates a wealth of design history.
