The designer and interior decorator Ilmari Tapiovaara (1914–1999) ranks amongst the most influential figures in Finnish design. He is remembered for work such as the Domus and Mademoiselle chairs.
Tapiovaara was the first Finnish designer to participate in international development cooperation. The Ilmari Tapiovaara special coin is designed by Pro Finlandia medal winning designer Harri Koskinen, one of the most distinguished contemporary Finnish designers.
