The Biennale stool was made for the Architectural Biennale of Venice, as something that can be found in many Finnish cottages or homes. Naturally the Biennale stool is bigger and heavier, and the finishing is made much more carefully than the chunks usually found at private homes.
As the name suggests, the Arte products were developed for special, unique projects, such as an architectural biennale, a culture sauna or an art gallery, to name a few. The collection also includes Nikari’s oldest product still in production, the Alvar tray by Alvar Aalto from the 1960’s.
