A lesser-known midcentury design has been reissued – the Aslak stacking chairs by Ilmari Tapiovaara.

A Scandinavian design, it actually dates as far back as 1946, but went into production in 1958, when new laminating methods of veneer made it possible for mass production.

For your money, you get a stackable chair with seat and back in formed plywood, the frame in laminated birch. Available in clear lacquered birch, honey or black stained birch, or white or red painted birch, the chair is priced from £531.
