Design: Mika Tolvanen
The VISU wood base chair is an ergonomic and functional chair with a timeless and recognizable profile. Form pressed veneer wood gives the shell of the chair its characteristic shape and creates visible lines and patterns in the surface that complement the design. The details and shapes of the wooden legs create an illusion of the chair floating elegantly over the floor. Plastic glide and felt glide included. 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 related 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.”
