The VISU wood base chair is an ergonomic and functional chair with a timeless and recognizable profile.

Formpressed veneer wood gives the shell of the chair its characteristic shape and creates visible lines and patterns in the surface that complement the design. The details and shapes of the wooden legs create an illusion of the chair floating elegantly over the floor.

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.
