Nikari presents the “August” stool, designed by Aamu Song and Johan Olin

The AUGUST product of Nikari special project ”2012 DESIGNS FOR NATURE” was actually already. This stool with the nickname "Rudi-Kari" has been designed by Aamu Song and Johan Olin (Company). From Aamu Song and Johan Olin: "AUGUST stool, ’Rudi-Kari’, follows the inventions of the Nikari masters, carpenters Rudi Merz and Kari Virtanen. It stands on Rudi's legs and carries Kari's head. The firm connection between the legs and the seat is made using parts of tree where a branch has grown – the strongest part of the tree – an innovation Rudi has previously used in coat hangers. The seat of the stool is shaped as sharp as Mr. Virtanen always is". The Project 2012 Designs for Nature has been carried out by Nikari in co-operation with the Finnish WWF, and is based in the manufacture of 12 products during the 12 months of the year by 12 recognized designers over the world, who use local forests’ wood and part od the sales price is donated to protecting rainforests and forests globally.
