Akademia Chair is a minimalist chair designed by Helsinki-based studio Kaksikko for Nikari. Salla Luhtasela and Wesley Walters are Helsinki-based designers specializing in ceramic tableware and wooden furniture. They share an interest in functional, understated forms that highlight each material’s tactile qualities, as well as in the production process itself. They met while studying at Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture and have collaborated on a broad range of professional projects under the studio name Kaksikko. The chair is made as part of Wesley Walters’ Master’s Thesis at Aalto University, a research of the American Shaker style and its characteristics, brought to life anew in a Nordic context. The result of this research, Akademia chair, is an interesting combination of both worlds.
