Visu appeal

Scandinavian design company Muuto has just launched Visu, a new chair series by Mika Tolvanen. The Finnish designer recently received the Bruno Mathsson Award, one of Scandinavia’s most prestigious design awards.

Muuto’s new Visu chair is all about precision and detail. Through a meticulous design process, lasting almost two years, Muuto and Mika Tolvanen went through every curve, edge and detail over and over again. That is also why Mika Tolvanen chose the name Visu – a reference to the Finnish word for precision. With a wide colour range, several upholstery options and a choice of two different bases, there is a Visu for any interior; at home, in a restaurant or at the office.


“The task was to create a personal interpretation of the ever-relevant plywood/shell chair. I wanted my chair to have an unobtrusive and timeless nature that is familiar but never boring and without sacrificing function or ergonomics. In the end, I think every detail is exactly as it is supposed to be.”


Shell options: seven different lacquer versions + upholstery versions; standard upholsteries: Steelcut Trio, Field (both from Kvadrat); base options: wood legs in seven different colours, lacquered wire base (six colours), brushed steel wire base; dimensions: height 80,5 cm, width 45,5 cm, depth 50 cm, seat height 44 cm.


Muuto is a Scandinavian design company that joins forces with the leading contemporary Scandinavian designers to create original products with new perspectives. The result is an innovative collection of furniture, lamps and accessories for modern interiors all over the world. For more info. visit muuto,com
