001 Dining Chair by Vaarnii
Our Dining Chair has instant presence, this is an unapologetically brawny chair. But despite its heft, the Dining Chair has been designed for comfort and makes an enjoyable seat for long and loose dinners. Such refined brutality is typical of Paulsen’s work. As is a love of pine; a material he describes as ‘psychedelic’ because of its lively natural grain. It is best enjoyed over large surface areas, says Paulsen – a theory put into practice here.
Made in Finland of Finnish pine.
All Vaarnii products are locally made by a small number of expert Finnish makers. All pine wood is harvested from sustainably managed Finnish forests, PEFC certified and slow grown.
Pine is very characterful material. As a result of the naturally occurring oils and resins, pine will change colour as it ages. Heartwood and sapwood will start aging at a different speed resulting in gorgeous stripy patterns. The color will gradually even out and mature to a beautiful honey tone over the course of years.
Although our pine wood is the hardest soft wood you can find, it will dent and scratch over time. We ask you to embrace these characterful signs of aging.
Our raw material is hand selected for maximum quality. Because of the nature of wood, each product has a unique grain, colour, and pattern.
