Tapio Wirkkala 9020 coffee table by Asko Finland 1958





The coffee table Model 9020, designed by Tapio Wirkkala and manufactured by Asko in Finland in 1958, is an exemplary piece of Scandinavian modern design. Renowned for its simplicity, functionality, and natural beauty, this table epitomizes the essence of mid-century Scandinavian furniture. Crafted from solid oak wood, the table features a sculptural, organically shaped structure that highlights Wirkkala’s ability to blend form and function seamlessly. The natural warmth and rich grain of the oak wood bring a touch of nature indoors, while the smooth, flowing lines of the design reflect the organic influences prevalent in Scandinavian modernism. The table’s rectangular glass top enhances its visual appeal, offering a clear view of the intricate wooden framework beneath. This transparent element not only adds a sense of lightness and space to the design but also emphasizes the exquisite craftsmanship of the wooden base.


The Model 9020 coffee table is in fantastic condition, having developed a gentle patina over time. This natural aging process adds to its charm and authenticity, marking it as a true vintage piece with a story to tell. The Asko brand stamp on the bottom of the structure confirms its provenance, ensuring its status as a genuine and valuable piece of design history. More than just a functional piece of furniture, the Model 9020 coffee table is a work of art. It reflects Tapio Wirkkala’s masterful design principles and the enduring quality of Asko’s manufacturing. Whether placed in a modern living room or a vintage-inspired space, this table stands as a testament to the timeless appeal and innovation of Scandinavian modern design.
