This piece comes from never used, old stock from the Italian Finn Form collection. This collection was curated by Italian designer Letterio (Lillo) Mangano (1921 – 2002). The collection was started in 1958 and consisted of works by Finnish designers like Alvar Aalto, Tapio Wirkkala and Timo Sarpaneva.
