The young designer, one half of the design duo Kaksikko, together with his partner Salla Luhtasela studied the Finnish chair manufacturing heritage, the Shaker style and Japanese tradition, and combined these various elements to make the Akademia chair. Akademia by Nikari

Akademia by Nikari

The Finland-based wood design studio and furniture manufacturer aims to carry on the traditions of fine Nordic cabinetmaking to bring out the best of wood in contemporary design. Its values of uncompromising craftsmanship combined with carefully thought-out modern design and sustainable production easily pair with the academic approach of Kaksikko.

'Tales of craftsmanship', Nikari’s pop up exhibition at Stockmann Helsinki City Center is now open until 17 March.
