Chair #269

—Designed by Jouko Järvisalo 

The Finnish word KOLO refers to a small hollow, nook, hole or niche; metaphorically, it also refers to a living space. So now we know. The KOLO is an armchair made from a single wooden sheet, although this looks more like metal to me. Its armrests form a flat, planar surface, from which the seat and chair back are pressed out to create a hollow that makes the seat. The Kolo appears to float on air like a flying magic carpet, but it is supported by a minimalist tubular steel frame.
