Concept

“Good products do not raise questions, they provide answers – answers to often complex and time-consuming challenges, but in a way that is obvious, universal and enduring,” Fokkema says.

The Pi chair was designed especially for Piiroinen and represents the first chair that Diederik Fokkema has designed.

The Pi chair is a chair – it does not pretend to be anything else. It is a wooden chair, but its legs and seat are connected by a seamless metal frame. Technically and in terms of the materials, the details that lie in the shadows of the seat are a masterpiece of engineering expertise and enable an easily approachable, light and timeless look for the entire chair series.

The Pi chair uses uniquely deformable veneer that flexes three-dimensionally in the press. The result cannot be seen even by the naked eye, but it can be felt immediately when you sit in the chair. It takes you in its lap, and it also allows you to relax. Thanks to the unique veneer and flexing technology, we have been able to keep the chair light yet rigid, while the dimensions offer support for the back and sitting in just the right places.

Pi chair A.1 model with four leg solid oak base and shell constructed in double curved plywood (3D veneer) is available in five different colors (oak white, oak natural, oak walnut, oak smoked, oak black). Also available with front part of the shell upholstered, with metal legs (stackable version), with oak armrests and on swivel base (also with castors).

The whole wide range of Pi collection will include stools, bar stools, chairs, armchairs, sofas and tables for dining, conference and lounge areas. To be continued…
