Nordic style lounge seat by Mika Tolvanen. part of the Visu family.
MIKA TOLVANEN ON THE DESIGN “Visu lounge is a natural continuation of the first Visu chair. The idea was to create a simple and elegant stool with great seating comfort, supported by a discrete footrest. The proportions of the chair are exactly right, and the chair is able to combine small elegant curves with longer straight lines in the quest of becoming an ever-relevant furniture.”
MIKA TOLVANEN is part of the Finnish Rehti Design group. After graduating from the Royal College of Art with a Master in design in 2001, Mika established his own design office in Helsinki. He has since worked with some of the world’s top designers and manufacturers.
MIKA TOLVANEN ON HIS DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
The objective is not only to design products but rather look for occasions that need design. What really defines objects is how we use them not what they appear to be. Design should not be the one that requires attention by being special.
MIKA TOLVANEN ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
The way of doing design is always very personal for each designer. But the way we dwell up here has penetrated our lives and the way we design. Nordic design has always been here and there have been no gaps between periods. Only means of manufacturing have developed making new design more exciting.
