Fritz Hansen N01 Dining Chair
Manufacturer: Fritz Hansen
This piece is an original licensed Fritz Hansen piece.
Created by the merging of Danish and Japanese aesthetics and purity, N01 brings back nature and embraces today's modern life. A life where the dining room is not only a place to enjoy a meal but it’s also a place to be productive, a place for conversation, a place to relax from a busy workday or just everyday life.
Whilst the N01™ chair is an honest design, its meticulous attention to detail is at times hidden in the complex, well-crafted construction. The meeting between the shell and the armrests is a tale in itself. To express a pure and discrete appearance the joint sections are designed to look as if they are touching each other as little as possible.At the same time, the skeleton of the chair shows immense strength and makes the design suitable for heavy use and last for generations.
Visually, N01 is a geometric playground. Whilst all vertical lines are conic - thicker in the middle than at the ends - every horizontal line on the chair is straight. The versatile use of different geometric shapes adds vividness to the design. It furthermore highlights the complexity surrounding this chair and the uncompromising process of drawing, designing and crafting it. The mix of solid wood and veneer is found among this complexity.
Materials: The base is made of solid wood lacquered with a water based clear or black lacquer.
The seat and back are made of laminated veneer lacquered with a water based clear or black lacquer. The outer veneer is sliced beech or oak, the seven inner layers of veneer are made of rotary cut beech veneer. The veneer layers are glued together with a water based urea-formaldehyde glue.
Dimensions: Width: 62cm x Depth 49cm x Height: 77cm (Seat Height: 46.5cm)
