Cleo is a clever solid wood stacking chair with a fun, joyful character. Barstool and Counter-height versions allow the collection to be used in a wide range of interiors and applications.
Cleo's backrest is shaped in a perfect semicircle, so that when several chairs are placed in a row, they form a pattern reminiscent of the archways and decorative motifs of classical architecture.
Design: Stine Aas, Norway

Circus Wood is produced in partnership with one of the oldest and most skilled family-owned wooden chair manufacturers in Italy. The result is an intelligent blend of advanced industrial production and atelier craftsmanship. Production is maintained in small controlled batches with meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship, while industrial methods provide consistent precision and efficiency.
Across all products and materials in the Circus family:
Wood is sourced from FSC-certified and sustainably managed forests in Europe, where trees are selectively harvested on a long-term rotational basis.
All lacquers and glues used produce no VOC emissions and are completely non-toxic to human health.
Upholstery fabrics are produced with natural fibers and dyes that meet strict European environmental standards.
All packaging is made from recycled content and is fully recyclable. A small amount of EPE foam is used to protect the most vulnerable, high-impact areas.
Circus has passed BIFMA testing for seating performance, ensuring long-term durability and usefulness.
The construction follows a clear visual logic that appears deceptively simply yet conceals several innovative details. The seat is produced as a single piece of bent plywood with a subtle curvature for comfort while maintaining the designs geometric rigor. “I like the way the seat seamlessly bends out of the fitted frame to form the back ”.
The solid wood frame features a clever in-set joint between the back rail and legs for added strength, while a concealed handle-scoop is incorporated on the underside of the top rail so the chair is easy to pick up and move. “I really focused on the back. It’s actually the part of a chair you see the most .”

A graduate of the Bergen Academy of Art and Design, Stine continues to live and work in Norway’s west coast city of Bergen. Stine debuted on the Norwegian design scene just a few years ago, and since then, has produced a range of furniture and interior accessories that industry insiders describe as ground-breaking.
Some say Stine remains true to the Nordic tradition of wood craftsmanship; others say she has set a new standard for the craft. Stine’s eye for colour is unique. She works with finishes that echo design trends, but more importantly, chooses tones that bring out the product’s personality. Stine’s spectacular Oaki chair for Northern is loaded with character, and available in finishes that highlight its sleek silhouette.
