A rare pair of Yrjo Kukkapurro 417 A chairs (The ‘A’ denotes the style of base, as these were also produced with a round base) The white metal, swivel base supports the moulded fibreglass seat. These are covered in original cognac leather. The leather is in very good condition, with small patches of natural wear. The foam is very good too and both are exceptional for their age.

Designed in the 1960s and manufactured by Haimi in Finland. This is the smaller chair to the larger Karuselli Chair, which is with out doubt the most comfortable chair in the world.

The story goes that the designer Yrjo Kukkapurro was stumbling home from a big night out and sat in a snow drift, which he found amazingly comfortable, so he returned in the morning to make a mould of his imprint, this mould forms the seat shape and give it it’s comfort.
