Nikari’s Biennale is a striking stool that celebrates the natural beauty of wood. Each piece is unique since the cube-shaped stool features distinctive wood grain, annual rings and cracks. The Biennale stool, designed by Kari Virtanen, is crafted from oak and treated with natural oil mixture. The Biennale stool, part of Nikari's Arte collection, functions as a minimalist seat, nightstand and decorative object.

Nikari products are made in Finland using only certified wood.
