Tapiovaara was a great admirer of Alvar Aalto's work and wanted to create products based on the same ideological premises. He embraced the principle of social equality of functionalism, and felt that architecture was the starting point of his design work.
The slim tapered legs of Ovalette and Domino (rectangular version) coffee tables are a hint of their true Scandinavian design. A style that, even today, fits well into any space. Ovalette features a solid birch top with surface veneers and a solid wood frame. Offered in either walnut or oak.
