Pi A1 chair and Pi E1 barstool
Fuudi, opened in year 2017, is new simple meeting place, fresh living room and innovative kitchen in the heart of Helsinki in Vallila.
The area has an interesting history.
Back in the old days just at the place of Fuudi’s dining room cows of the townies were pastured. Later on concentration of metal and textile factories, machine shops and production plants grew on the meadows. Today you can find from this area a programmer, a craftsman, a worker or a musician. Still today, the nature is strongly present in Fuudi’s activities.Piiroinen had the privilege to deliver our Pi collection of chairs to a destination, whose history is so interesting and today’s implementation has been carried out with the latest design.
Paula Tornberg / Pinto Design Oy:
"It was important for us to find a chair that is domestic and supports Finnish production (the chair is designed in a collaboration with Dutch FOKlab, Fokkema & Partners). The starting point for the Fuudi’s design and the red thread was in the region’s history, industry and craftsmanwork. The Pi chair combines the previous ones and in addition it is a piece of art for high-quality work. The chair is very comfortable to sit on, it is stylish, but also at the same time sturdy. It is adaptable and materials are very flexible, depending on the project. Excellent choice and breeze for the restaurant world."
