Description:

Kari Asikainen’s Kari 1 is a classic form-pressed wooden chair from 1969. Stackable with simple design, it is a comfortable universal chair.

Thanks to its versatile range of options, such as several seat heights raised base, and detachable seat upholstery, Kari 1 is especially suitable for care facilities. This makes the Kari 1 chair ideal for rehabilitation centres and rest homes.

As the chairs can be linked into rows and have optional writing pads, they can also be used in halls and waiting rooms.

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. 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.

Dimensions:

21.65" W x 19.69" D x 30.71" H
