With nods to both Italian and Nordic design and a twist of mid-century feel, Luca Nichetto’s high-end Hai chair merges classic and contemporary design. Inspired by the sleek form of a whale shark – as suggested by the Finnish “hai” name – the armchair comprises a slender, elegant metal frame and invitingly soft upholstery. What’s more, Hai boasts comfortable functionality; it can be assembled by hand with no tools, making it a darling of the online design world.
