nikari

If you build it they will come. Or more precisely, if you build it to a quality that Finnish furniture brand NIKARI does, then they will flock to you.

With the likes of Jasper Morrison, Harri Koskinen, Martí Guixé and Alfredo Häberli on their roster and a heritage dating back to its founding in 1967 by master furniture maker Kari Virtanen, NIKARI sits in the rarefied position of being master of both craft and design. Arkitektura is proud to be bringing NIKARI’s exquisitely made furniture to San Francisco for the first time.

Maybe it’s something to do with the long winter evenings up there in the woods west of Helsinki that has led to generations of whittling wood to perfection. The result is a sublime and consciously created collection that reminds us of the natural elements in the world: The sea, the woods and the sensuous movement that comes with making.

In 2012, NIKARI’s team put together a unique piece for each month of the year. Alfredo Häberli’s piece for that collection is extremely unique. When reflecting on it, NIKARI cabinet maker Kari Nyyssönen says, “It is always a delicate task to make unique objects. The design of APRIL tables meant a lot of improvising and tradition.

Hello everyone, 

We hope everyone is staying healthy and well!

In accordance to the SF Bay Area "Shelter in Place" mandate we are doing our part to help stem the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Please know that we here at Arkitektura San Francisco have decided to close both our showrooms effective Tuesday, March 17th until further notice. 

During this time, we will be working remotely and are here to support you. 
In preparation we have available visual presentations of our showroom, enabling you to virtually see what is on our showroom floor currently. We can guide you through product selections, with finishes, fabric and leather options. We will in turn get samples to you as soon as they are available to us.

Most of our vendors have confirmed that in the interest of their team's safety, they are also closing during this time. Therefore, please note, that we are experiencing delays in both production and shipping. We are working closely with all of our partners and we will make sure to update you all as soon as any new information is provided to us.
