Kari X is a form-pressed easy chair from 1984. Kari XY has an optional raised base, detachable seat upholstery and wider armrests.
Thanks to their light and durable wooden structure and timeless design, the Kari chairs have a low environmental footprint. For example, making a single Kari 1 chair generates the same amount of CO2 emissions as a car trip of roughly 70 km. The trip will take less than an hour but the chair will last for decades.
The Kari series designed by Kari Asikainen consists of diverse furniture ranging from universal chairs and tables to lobby furniture and sofa groups. More than half a million Kari chairs have been made. Placed tightly side by side, these chairs would form a row from Helsinki to Turku and back.
Wooden parts: birch, stained birch, beech.
Seat and backrest upholstered.
