Classics of The Future


RIN™, by HIROMICHI KONNO 1972
“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”

Check out the video above to hear Hiromichi Konno talk us through his ideas and inspirations for the multifunctional RIN™

The idea is to create a new type of chair that is in harmony with Japanese and Danish design traditions. The chair is elegant with a very innovative and progressive design. It invites you to sit in it for hours taking the traditional chair design into a new direction.

SLOW CHAIR by RONAN and ERWAN BOUROULLEC, 2007

slow-chairRonan and Erwan Bouroullec created this expansive armchair by using an extremely strong, precisely shaped knit which is stretched over the metal frame like a fitted stocking. Thanks to the knit sling cover, the Slow Chair combines soft comfort with ergonomic support, which is further enhanced by thin seat and back cushions. The translucent sling cover replaces the thick cushions of traditional armchairs, resulting in a design that is lightweight, yet generously proportioned. The restrained appearance of the Slow Chair is equally appealing in the living room or winter garden, while offering unrestrained seating comfort.
