Yksi means “one” in Finnish, reflecting several elements incorporated into a singular design, signalling classic elegance with a modern twist. The Yksi Chair has two pairs of legs that unite in an upside-down Y-shaped base, as a focal point of support for the seat. The distinctive shape crafted in solid oak is a contemporary take on classic woodworking techniques aimed at a modern audience.

About The Collection

Designed by Thau & Kallio, the structure makes the chair surprisingly light – both visually and in terms of weight. Two chairs can be stacked for compact storage, adding extra appeal for professional work spaces, corporate dining halls, cafés and private kitchens.
