Inspired by a Louis the 16th side chair, the Minja Kolehmainen ‘Side Chair’ is an exquisite example of woodwork. The ‘Side Chair’ posesses a clever twist. Instead of a soft, cushioned upholstery the Minja Kolehmainen ‘Side Chair’ is hard and made entirely of beech and walnut wood. The chair is contructed so that it still possesses the aesthetic detailing of fabric.

The Minja Kolehmanien ‘Side Chair’ it is not made by traditional methods alone. The components are CNC cut and then assembled and finished by hand. This piece is a combination of modern technology and old-world craftsmanship.
