Visu Chair – Tube Base

Visu Chair – Tube Base


by Muuto

The task was to create a personal interpretation of the ever relevant plywood chair. I wanted my chair to have an unobtrusive and timeless nature that is familiar but never boring and without sacrificing function or ergonomics. Designing a family of chairs, visually related but for different functions, was an iterative and thorough process lasting nearly two years. In the end, I think every detail is exactly as it is supposed to be.


The slim tube legs and form-pressed veneer wood body of the Visu Chair creates quiet lines, while making it easily stackable. The Visu chair sits comfortably in home dining areas, conferences, office spaces, or restaurants.

The Visu is a stackable chair for private and contract interiors available in a three colours. Visu is also available with sled base or wood base. Up to 15 chairs can be stacked on top of each other.
