Artek Ovalette Coffee Table
Ilmari Tapiovaara, 1954
Combining an oval table top with a dramatic crossed-leg frame, the Ovalette Table makes an elegant and striking addition to any room. The slim tapering legs evoke traditional Finnish design, while their diagonal setting draws the eye. Ilmari Tapiovaara wanted to ensure that his designs were lightweight and easy to transport; to that end, the table top is made from birch plywood with either an oak or walnut veneer.
