A Late Start for a Design Classic – Trienna Side Table Designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara for Artek

9. May 2019

The Trienna coffee table was designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara in 1954. Trienna is a sculptural and lightweight table comprising three sheets of form-pressed birch plywood that create a beautiful geometric pattern on the top.

Only a few model versions were made in 1954, and the serial production didn’t start until 2007. In 2008 the Trienna coffee table was selected as the “Best reissue table” by the Wallpaper* magazine.
