The classic Scandi wood chair with its sleek and minimalistic look seem to reinvent itself every other year. In 2018 one interesting chair is the Linea Akademia chair by Wesley Walters & Salla Luhtasela for Nikari. It was part of Wesley Walters’ Master’s Thesis at Aalto University, a research of ”The American Shaker style and its characteristics, brought to life anew in a Nordic context”. Handsome!
