Design: Mika Tolvanen
The VISU sled base chair is an ergonomic and functional chair with a timeless and recognisable profile. Formpressed veneer wood gives the shell of the chair its characteristic shape and creates visible lines and patterns in the surface that complement the design. This stackable VISU chair is ideal for private or professional interiors and comes in a range of colors and upholsteries. Option of pre-mounted felt glides upon request for orders above 50 chairs.
Mika Tolvanen on the design: “The task was to create a personal interpretation of the ever-relevant plywood chair. I wanted my chair to have an unobtrusive and timeless nature that is familiar but never boring and without sacrificing function or ergonomics. Designing a family of chairs, visually releated but for different functions, was an iterative and thorough process lasting nearly two years. In the end, I think every detail is exactly as it is supposed to be.”
Material: Lacquered ash or oak veneer shell with the option of wood, textile or leather upholstered seat & powder coated steel base. Up to 15 non-upholstered chairs can be stacked together.
