About 016 Maasto Dining Armchair

016 Maasto Dining Armchair designed by Ronan Bouroullec for Vaarnii. 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 made locally by a small number of expert Finnish makers. All pinewood is harvested from sustainably managed Finnish forests. Our outdoor products are made of heat-treated pine, Lunawood ThermoWood®. Thermowood is a non-toxic material produced by using only heat, and steam. The heat treatment makes the furniture weatherproof, so no other surface treatment is required. If you wish, you can treat your Osa furniture with natural wood finishes for the exterior (such as decking oil), which can help keep the product clean.  Once unboxed, products will react very quickly with UV light and begin changing color towards a beautiful silver tone. They will reach their final color after approximately one year outdoors. Contact us for a sample piece of the aged thermowood. 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.
