Description

Nikari’s Storia stool is the embodiment of minimalism, shining the spotlight on the natural beauty of wood and the expert joinery of carpenter and designer Kari Virtanen. When designing Storia, Virtanen looked back on a seat he crafted in the 1960s – the Storia stool is an homage to Nordic woodworking traditions but also to the very first stool Virtanen created all those years ago. Storia’s delightfully simple design is easy to incorporate into a variety of private and public spaces.
