The Fritz Hansen N01 dining chair is inspired by nature and embraces today's modern evolving society. Designed by Japanese designer Nendo, the N01 armchair merges Danish and Japanese aesthetics to create a versatile, pure and simplistic design in nine layers of pressure moulded veneer with solid wood legs.
Millimetre by millimetre, the design is an illustration of beauty and functionality.
Materials: Seat and back - laminated wood 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 wood veneer layers are glued together with a water-based urea-formaldehyde glue. The chair comes in natural oak, beech and black lacquered oak finishes.
Dimensions: Height: 77cm x Width: 62cm x Depth: 49cm (Seat Height: 46.5cm) Armrest height: 66cm
Founded in 2002 - Nendo is a Japanese design studio headed by Oki Sato. Their diverse range of designs include furniture, lighting, industrial and interiors. Sato was born in Toronto, Canada and later moved to Tokyo, where he took a M.A. in Architecture at Waseda University. "Nendo" means 'modelling clay' in Japanese - a term perfectly suited to the studio’s sculptural approach to design no matter the material. For their work, Nendo has been awarded with Dezeen, Wallpaper and Red Rot Design Awards among many more throughout the studio's lifetime.
