Karuselli Lounge Chair

Yrjö Kukkapuro - Artek

One winter day in the beginning of the 60’s, the Finnish designer Yrjö Kukkapuro was playing in the snow with his daughter Isa. They made different kinds of snow chairs. The results were so inspiring that the designer soon had to leave for his workshop atelier to form something similar out of “real materials”. He set traditional chicken wire so, that he could form a shape by sitting on it just like in the snow. The right kind of shape was created immediately. So began the story of the famous glassfibre chair, Karuselli.
