Founded in 1967, close to the Nikkarinkoski river in Seinäjoki, Finland, Nikari is a design studio and wood furniture manufacturer. The name “Nikari” is a play on the Finnish word for “cabinet maker”, the Nikkarinkoski area, and the founder’s name, Kari Virtanen. The company’s rich history began with collaborations with two masters of Finnish design and architecture, Alvar Aalto and Kaj Franck. Over the years, Nikari has maintained the same passion for high-end design and Finnish craftsmanship. The company’s studio and workshop produce furniture and wood home accessories, using renewable energy and sustainable materials. Designed with a timeless aesthetic, all Nikari products are as versatile as they are long-lasting.
