A fixture of the permanent collection of several museums including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, the Karuselli Lounge Chair is a highly distinctive, hyper-iconic piece that looks like it’s been beamed from the future. Some 60 years on from its original creation the chair is undoubtedly a masterpiece of the form.
Featuring a high degree of manoeuvrability, the Karuselli features a swinging and swivelling base, offering an unparalleled sense of comfort. With its space-age design, the Karusseli is available on its own or with a matching footstool, with the finished piece pushing both the boundaries and our expectations of what is possible with chair design.
Yrjo Kukkapuro's designs reflect an awareness of space and its function, be it the space of classical or modern buildings. Furniture has been designed by making it complement the architecture of the building, by making it assimilate with the space without dominating it.
