Defined by a supportive, inviting seat, mirroring that exactly of the In Between dining chairs, the bar chair allows for you to truly sit back and relax. Crafted from oak, available in three distinct finishes, the curvaceous seat shell sits upon a durable, slender frame; providing both a practical and stylish design. Perfect for pairing with a high worktop or breakfast bar area in a kitchen space, the bar chair's simple, elegant design can adapt with interior environments of all styles.
Sami Kallio (b. 1975) was born in Helsinki, Finland, and moved to Gothenburg, Sweden, at the age of two. He completed the Swedish high school joiner programme and studied fine art for two years, before embarking on a BA and MA in design at the School of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg. An exchange year at the Helsinki School of Arts, Design and Architecture in 2004 helped maintain the contact with his Finnish roots. In Kallio’s own words, his work combines the melancholy of the Finnish design heritage with the humour of the Swedish tradition.
In 2009, Kallio co-founded the Gothenburg-based furniture manufacturer Brikolör. The company aims to produce furniture with a guaranteed technical durability of 300 years. In 2011, he established Sami Kallio Studio, and launched his first collection, The Finnish Blood in Me.
