Why the price of the chair is so high?

We spent 3 years developing the ergonomics of this chair so that it would be comfortable to sit in two interchangeable positions.
It sure looks minimal, but it mostly includes custom-built parts like a press-molded plywood frame, molded heavy-duty feet pads, injection-molded polyurethane foam seat, and complex upholstery. Not to mention the special packaging that allows us to avoid packaging fillers.
Having in mind the current global environmental degradation we feel we have a responsibility of producing only such products that will not end up among trash after a year or two. Cheap materials and production usually make short-serving products that need to be replaced frequently.
That is why we manufacture in the EU out of quality materials that make the Muista chair a long-serving piece of furniture.
Also please have in mind that the price also includes taxes, shipping costs, and our small company’s research & development costs.

Product FAQs

What materials and fabrics do you use?

The Muista chair is made of press-formed birch plywood and durable wool fabric. PU CMHR molded foam is used for the seat. Cast rubber feed pads are used for protection. 

Is the seat soft enough?

It is soft enough for active sitting. But not soft enough for prolonged static sitting 🙂 The Muista will make you move since it was designed for that. If you get tired of sitting in one position, you simply switch to another one.

Initially, it can take some 1-3 weeks to get used to the saddle sitting position on the Muista chair – it is normal since saddle sitting is very different from the regular chairs: it wakes up some muscles that were used to prolonged inactivity while sitting on flat seats. You will get used to it, and will thank Muista later for that 🙂

Can I use your chair on thick carpet?

The Muista chair has protective rubber feet pads, so it will not ruin your carpet, however, it should eventually flatten the carpet area of contact, as any other chair would.

How should I care for my chair?

When first used, a certain amount of excess fiber will work its way to the surface of the fabric. This is completely normal. As the upholstery is used these excess fibers will eventually diminish. In the meantime, the fibers can be brushed off the surface with a soft clothing brush or vacuum. These excess fibers do not reflect the quality of the fabric or the long life of wool. This is a normal result of the way the wool yarn is spun.

Easy care. Wool is antistatic and does not attract dirt like other fabrics. Wool is also water repellent, so spillages are slow to penetrate the fabric. To maintain the beautiful color and appearance of the fabric, we recommend gentle vacuuming, preferably every week, with a soft nozzle.

Stain removal. A golden rule: always remove stains as quickly as possible! Most stains and dirt can be removed using an ordinary Ph neutral detergent diluted in lukewarm water at normal strength (follow the directions on the bottle).

Important:

  • First, soak up as much of the liquid as possible with the white kitchen roll or tea towel.
  • If the stain has dried on, remove as much of it as possible by vacuuming.
  • Rub carefully with a clean, white cloth.
  • Press the fabric with a dry tea towel or piece of white kitchen roll every time the water is added so as to soak up moisture and dirt.
  • Use clean water without any detergent for the final clean. The area may appear darker than the surrounding fabric after being cleaned with water. This will become noticeable over time.

For mega-nasty stains. Remove the seat and take it to dry-cleaners. If you want a more detailed wool stain guide – please email us at info@muista.eu

What is the sizing of the chair?

The size of the Muista chair is 50cm x 52cm x 30 cm.

The size of the Muista XL chair is 72.5cm x 60cm x 33cm.

Is the chair safe?

Being a balancing chair, the Muista is made to be unstable. To minimize the risk of falls, always try to sit close to the center of the seat and never sit on the edge, especially in the saddle position.

Within reasonable deviation, Muista chairs are suitable for sitters of all ages, just with the caution and awareness of the possibilities of you+Muista+movement gone wild=painful impact with the floor. Really, please, do not go berserk on your Muista – we will not be responsible for any possible injuries.

Where could I find reviews about Muista?

You can find reviews about Muista on several websites including Trustpilot and Judge.me.

Do you offer warranty?

We offer a 3-years warranty on all our products.

The warranty covers major manufacturing defects or structural failures that prevent the chair from safe and comfortable use.

The warranty does not cover damage caused by misuse, normal wear, and tear, or defects caused by exposure to direct sunlight.

Minor aesthetic defects: at Muista we believe that mass production should be treated responsibly and discarded materials kept to a minimum. This means that we do not discard as defects minor aesthetic damages left from the production processes or wood knots and irregularities in the natural wood structure.
However, if you received your Muista with issues that you truly can not live with – you are free to return the chair for free and get a 100% refund within 14 days from receiving your chair. For all cases please contact us via email: info@muista.eu
