Artek's Domus chair was designed by Finnish interior architect and designer Ilmari Tapiovaara in 1946. The chair was designed for the Domus Academica student housing complex, located in Helsinki and drawn by architect Pauli Salomaa. The interior and furniture design of the complex was the first large-scale project for Ilmari Tapiovaara and his wife Annikki Tapiovaara.
Domus was designed to be a multifunctional chair that would meet the diverse needs of student housing. It served in the student rooms, hallways, auditoriums and conference rooms as well as in the cafeteria. Domus chair is a stackable, comfortable and ergonomic piece of furniture with an elegant, timeless design. Nowadays manufactured by Artek, the chair has become a beloved classic of Finnish design.
