The RIN Chair by Hiromichi Konno for Fritz Hansen

December 30, 2008

In 2009, Danish furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen will be introducing the RIN Collection. The main focus of this collection is the new RIN chair designed by Japanese designer, Hiromichi Konno.

From Fritz Hansen:

The Japanese word RIN means an appearance that is stunning, elegant and courageous. The idea is to create a new type of chair that is in harmony with Japanese and Danish design traditions.

Hiromichi Konno says:

“I wanted to make a beautiful chair that can stimulate and awaken emotions in people. It must be able to appeal visually but also make us feel a form of elegance when we sit in it. Therefore, I have established something poetical, simple, strong, relaxed and innovative all at the same time. The goal from the beginning was to create the perfect chair”
