Nikari chairs emphasise sustainability and peaceful living

Nikari's sustainable, quiet wood design furniture collection is on display at Milan Design Week. The company is known for the continuity of its products and its culture of understated, peaceful way of living.

One of the showpieces is Archetyp, a functional, simple and straightforward lobby or lounge chair. The dimensions and shapes give an idea of a chair pared to the bare minimum with subtle refinement. The upholstered seat and back give good support for long-term seating. 'In updating this well-known archetype of upholstered armchair with a wooden frame, we've tried to lighten the structure and give it the appearance of something both familiar and simultaneously fresh and of its time,' said designer Jasper Morrison.

Nikari's reputation for faultless craftsmanship allows the design to transcend ordinary everyday character, giving the design the edge it needs to perform in well thought architectural surroundings.

The Faneeri folding chair by Jonas Forsman is an example of great balance between comfortability and minimal material usage. The Faneeri folding chair can be easily stored, but even in its flat form it looks elegant. The chair can be used in light contract spaces (not suitable for heavy-traffic areas due to the minimalist structure), but one might like to have it in a small home, too.

'Faneeri is a wooden folding chair crafted to combine comfortable seating with flat
storage. The backrest is made from thin cross laminated veneers connecting the front
and back legs. Unfolding the chair creates a naturally curved backrest; fold it back,
and it becomes flat. This construction enhances strength and comfort, eliminating
the need for stretchers between the legs, creating a simple silhouette,' said Jonas.

The Akademia High shair by Kaksikko (Wesley Walters and Salla Luhtasela) is a useful addition to Akademia series; a high version of the comfortable chair to be used both at home and at the office, restaurant, café, hotel etc. surroundings.
