Product information

The Swedish design duo Bernadotte & Kylberg created the Wiurila chair for the restaurant at the historical Finnish manor Wiurila, located in Halikko in southern Finland. Although the Wiurila chair is a chair that is specifically developed for the manor's restaurant – and with obvious references to the manor buildings itself – it is anything but limited to that environment.

The manor Wiurila, which is located right next to our factory, needed a new chair for its banquet hall. We were asked to design something that was both special and suitable for the historic premises.

Wiurila has a long history dating back to the 15th century, but it was in the early 19th century that the medieval manor was expanded to what it is today. The corps de logis at Wiurila, a two-story stone building in neoclassical style designed by architect Charles Bassi, was completed in 1811 and is considered one of the most beautiful mansions of the era. A few decades later, it was joined by the brick outbuildings, which Magnus Reinhold Armfelt built according to drawings by Carl Ludvig Engel. Today, the manor houses, among other things, a hotel, restaurant, equestrian activities, and an 18-hole golf course.

When Bernadotte & Kylberg took on the task of designing a chair for the manor's restaurant, it was natural to let Wiurila's architecture influence the design. "The inspiration for the chair's wing-shaped back is taken from the roof of the outbuildings, and the chair's legs from the manor's pillars." - Bernadotte & Kylberg.
