design Wesley Walters & Salla Luhtasela
The light Akademia chair is designed by Wesley Walters and Salla Luhtasela in 2019. As the name suggests, the Akademia chair was the result of Wesley Walter’s Master’s Thesis work at Aalto University, Helsinki. 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.
The Linea collection includes soft, organic forms and upholstered products with round legs. Every piece of furniture is made keeping in mind the furniture making tradition of Finland and the joinery developed throughout the years at the Nikari studio workshop.
