Besides being endlessly useful, the crisp lines of a well-considered wooden chair often bring clarity to a room's décor. With the Visu Chair, designer Mika Tolvanen wanted to put his own spin on this modern classic. "The task was to create a personal interpretation of the ever-relevant plywood chair," he says. In the end, it took 2 years of jiggering to arrive at the final product for Muuto. Mika's exacting standards are reflected in the name he chose: "Visu"-the Finnish word for "precision."
