Simple and strong, the Maasto Chair by Ronan Bouroullec is an ode to pine. Maasto is Instantly archetypal, a hardworking seat for daily dining at home or in public spaces with a seamless profile and brutally honest design. Maasto’s uncomplicated silhouette is created by combining plywood sides for strength, reduced bulk and simplicity of construction, with a solid pine seat and back for durability. Our specially-made Finnish plywood features an exaggerated grain, producing an intoxicating hyper-pine aesthetic. The Maasto Dining Armchair is equipped with plywood arms for maximum seating comfort.
All Vaarnii products are locally made by a small number of expert Finnish makers. All pine wood is harvested from sustainably managed Finnish forests.
Pine is very characterful material. As a result of the naturally occurring oils and resins, pine will change colour as it ages. Heartwood and sapwood will start aging at a different speed resulting in gorgeous stripy patterns. The color will gradually even out and mature to a beautiful honey tone over the course of years.
Although our pine wood is the hardest soft wood you can find, it will dent and scratch over time. We ask you to embrace these characterful signs of aging.
Our raw material is hand selected for maximum quality. Because of the nature of wood, each product has a unique grain, colour, and pattern.
