The versatile Lukki 5AR Chair is part of a relaunch of Tapiovaara's Lukki series designed from 1951Â–1956. Particularly useful and surprisingly comfortable, the armchair is formed in a casual style with contours built for comfort. The chair boasts a light-weight structure comprised of plywood seating and a leggy bent metal tube frame. Stackable and versatile, this chair was designed for casual seating.Tapiovaara designed several versions of Lukki that were originally conceived as a competition entry for the design of furniture for student housing at the Helsinki University of Technology. Tapiovaara won the competition, which marked the beginning of the Lukki series, and a period in which Tapiovaara designed many multipurpose chairs. The collection's lanky tube frames offer meaning to its name, which translates to "daddy" in Finnish, recalling the tall legs of a daddy long leg spider. Replacing solid wood, Tapiovaara used the metal in tandem with bent plywood to achieve versatile, durable designs.
