Product description

"We talked about the pleasure in making things and the idea of a chair that could be bought in a box and built at home. Considering Nikari's skill in wood work, we worked up the idea of a chair which could be made by following easy instructions. The core of the design is the seat frame which is already assembled, to which the legs and back rest structure are attached with a combination of screwing and glueing. It's a basic but comfortable low chair with a slightly rural character and definite scandinavian influence, the kind of chair you would have in a country house near the fire, though it could work in a city apartment or a hotel lobby just as well." Designers’ comment width 550, depth 550, height 660/350 mm ash and canvas surface finish: natural wood oil mix also available: ottoman width 550, depth 395, height 340 mm

Concept

In 2012 Nikari asked twelve designers or design studios to give their response to Nikari’s design philosophy in the form of a product. The project was called Project 2012 Designs for Nature: Nikari cooperates with WWF Finland and part of the sales price is donated to protecting forests globally.
