Karuselli Lounge Chair by Yrjo Kukkapuro for Haimi

Karuselli Lounge Chair by Yrjo Kukkapuro for Haimi

This authentic lounge chair Karuselli was designed by Yrjo Kukkapuro for Haimi, Finland in 1964. This lounge chair is the perfect example of Kukkapuro’s interest in achieving ultimate comfort for the sitter.
The Karuselli Lounge Chair is the result of extensive experimentation. Kukkapuro began developing the fiberglass chair in the 1950s, arriving at the iconic form in 1964. Shaped to echo the form of the human body, the inspiration for the Karuselli came when the designer was playing outside making snow chairs with his daughter.
Kukkapuro spent several years sculpting the chair and searching for the right dimensions. The resulting chair was exceptionally comfortable and had a distinct style. The Karuselli became an immediate international success – Gio Ponti chose it for the cover of Domus in 1966, and Kukkapuro found a permanent supporter in Sir Terence Conran, who has proclaimed it his favourite chair.
This old lounge chair with black leather and white fiberglass is an authentic piece with an old patina and signs of age and use. It provides a tilt and swivel function. It is a collector’s item.
