One of the most famous designs by Yrjö Kukkapuro is the Karuselli lounge chair, which has been produced by Artek since 2014 based on the original designs.
The lounge chair designed by Charles & Ray Eames in 1956 represents the prototype for the entire category of lounge chairs and also unquestionably influenced the design by Yrjö Kukkapuro and the Karuselli lounge chair. But unlike Eames, Kukkapuro used fibreglass for the seat on the opulent lounge instead of wood, offering a curved shape that adapts perfectly to the user’s body. The additional generous leather cushioning makes the chair even more comfortable.
The chair was given its name based on the metal support, using which the chair can easily be rotated or tilted.
Available in white and with matching ottoman, on request.
