The VISU sled base chair is an ergonomic and functional chair with a timeless and recognisable profile.

Form pressed veneer wood gives the shell of the chair its characteristic shape and creates visible lines and patterns in the surface that complement the design. This stackable VISU chair is ideal for private or professional interiors and comes in a range of Colours and upholsteries. Also available with wood base and tube base.

Cleaning instructions:
Clean on a regular basis using a damp and clean cloth. Remove stains using a mild mixture of water and detergent. Avoid contact with sharp objects as these can leave scratches in the wood and lacquer.



Mika Tolvanen

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 the means of manufacturing have developed, making new design more exciting.”


In fact, our name Muuto, inspired by the Finnish word muutos, means new perspective.
