Ilmari Tapiovaara (a Finnish interior architect noted for his furnishings and textiles) took his design ideology from functionalism, the Bauhaus ideology, inspiration from Alvar Aalto, and from international influences. The pieces of art of his design are timeless, deliberately abstract, and pure of form. ‘Only the simplest is best. Take away all that is unnecessary, develop the plasticity’. (Read more about the designer here.)
