Please note: this design is available for contract use only.
Born in 1933, the Finnish furniture designer Yrjö Kukkapuro is a central figure of Finnish functionalism. Kukkapuro has been designing furniture since the 1950s and much of the furniture he designed is still in production today.
The Karuselli lounge chair by Artek is one of the most iconic chairs of the 1960’s. Its design and materials encapsulate the futuristic styles associated with the decade. The lounge chair’s shape is the result of four years experimentation to achieve the perfect combination of ergonomics and style. At the time the chair was revolutionary in its use of new materials and productions methods.
