Milan Continued: Visu Bar Stool by Mika Tolvanen at Muuto

Creativ Boards

Finnish Mika Tolvanen designed the Visu Bar Stool as a new addition to the Visu series at Muuto this season. The Visu Bar Stool is offered in 2 heights and 3 colours — grey, black and oak. Its lacquered wood shell and base come with a resilient powder coated steel footrest.


The bar stool follows the Visu chair’s Nordic expression with its discrete nature, and is functionally and ergonomically proper in its composition. That is also why Mika Tolvanen initially chose the title Visu, which refers to the Finnish word for precision.


Mika Tolvanen on the design and style ”The Visu Bar Stool is a all-natural continuation of the Visu chair. The idea was to develop a straightforward and sophisticated stool with excellent seating comfort, supported by a discrete footrest. The proportions of the chair are precisely right, and the chair is in a position to mix modest sophisticated curves with longer straight lines in the quest of getting to be an ever-appropriate furnishings.”
