Visu Chair - Wood Base
Mika Tolvanen for Muuto
Updated chair, now with a water-based lacquer!
Water-based lacquer emits fewer chemicals than standard lacquers for better indoor climates while making for better working conditions in the production phase. To ensure the highest possible quality, the designs introduced in water-based lacquer have undergone several tests, including scratch and lacquer strength test as well as chip-test.
Bringing lightness into the design, the Visu Chair combines a simple and comfortable form with a quiet silhouette. The shell is made in form-pressed veneer while the wooden legs provide a sleek yet sturdy base.
MIKA TOLVANEN ON THE DESIGN: "The idea for the Visu Chair was to create an elegantly simple interpretation of the archetypal plywood chair. I wanted for the design to have a subdued and timeless character that would add feelings of modern familiarity to any room together with a comfortable seat in form-pressed veneer. Designing the chair as a family that were all aesthetically linked yet could be used for different functions was a study in adapting a design to its surroundings and a process that lasted nearly two years. The Visu Chair is a new perspective on the traditional wooden chair, echoing the ideas of Scandinavian design together with a modern expression."
*Water-based lacquered chairs in Oak, White, Grey and Black should not be mixed with old PU lacquered versions due to color differences.*
