As the name suggests, the Akademia chair is the result of Wesley Walter’s Master’s Thesis at Aalto University, Helsinki. He along with his partner at Studio Kaksikko, Salla Luhtasela, designed the chair for Nikari in 2019.
The design of the Akademia oak wood chair is rooted in the Finnish chair manufacturing tradition, but is distinguished with various elements drawn from the Shaker style and Japanese tradition. With its sensuous curves and graceful appearance, the Akademia finds its place at a dining table or desk—or just as likely as a side chair in any room.
The Linea collection includes soft, organic forms with round legs. Each piece embodies the furniture making tradition of Finland and the joinery developed throughout the years at the Nikari studio workshop.
