Nikari's Classic RMJ counter stool, just like every Nikari product, is a great example of the finest craftsmanship of a professional carpenter. Master carpenter Rudi Merz designed Classic RMJ in 1999 as a work stool for himself, but the minimalist seat has since found its way from the carpenter's workshop to homes, offices and various public environments. Nowadays part of Nikari's Cafe collection, the Classic RMJ stool boasts a beautiful and organic design that makes it a timeless piece of furniture for any home. 

Nikari products are made in Finland using only certified wood.
