Understated and with a classical aesthetic, the Kiki Low Table suits as both a coffee table or side table, with its subtle design making it suitable for use in all manner of environments. Featuring a hard-wearing HPL table top and a tubular steel frame, Tapiovaara’s table has a compact form which makes it ideal for smaller spaces. The Kiki table is also available in a rectangular configuration, while the wider Kiki range includes a number of seating options.
Finnish designer Ilmari Tapiovaara was one of the greatest interior architects and designers of his era. With the mind of an explorer and soul of a craftsman, Tapiovaara was always looking for ways to improve everyday objects. He embraced the principle of social equality and became a leading figure in the years after World War Two, when design was no longer seen as a luxury for the few.
A main characteristic of Tapiovaara's work was that he explored its possibilities through multiplicity - he created many versions of each of his designs and reissued them in different shapes.
Tapiovaara's most iconic work is his Domus Chair, a stackable plywood chair which he designed for Domus Academica, a new student housing facility in Helsinki.
