Japanese and Danish design traditions have a lot in common and the new dining chair N01™ is a sublime example of this. In collaboration with the Japanese design studio Nendo we have created an armchair that is both minimalist and highly detailed. N01 is a chair fit for the many moments we share at home, be they with our family, around our favourite meal, or working on a project that excites us.
Nendo represents a design language that both complements the Fritz Hansen design DNA and at the same time challenges it with a new take on working with genuine craftsmanship. N01 combines a seat and a back in nine layers of veneer – characteristic of the Fritz Hansen stacking chair collection – while the base is a pure and elegant interpretation of working with solid wood. Millimetre by millimetre, the wooden design is an illustration of aesthetics and functionality. It represents a chair that is not only comfortable but stunning to look at from every angle. Nendo’s meticulous work with perfecting every centimetre is represented in the way the chair fits with the table when placed around it in a dining room setting. N01 is a very honest design that tells the story of the warmth of wood and of uncompromising quality. Its light expression is serene and seductive and its construction is clever and crafted with Japanese perfectionism.
The N01™ armchair comes in a mix of solid wood and veneer in natural oak, beech
and black coloured oak.
Size: h:77 x w:62 x d:49cm (seat height: 46.5cm)
The creation of the N01™ chair requires a meticulous attention to the construction. The chair is constructed as a puzzle consisting of 23 wood pieces in a mix of solid wood and veneer. While the chair is assembled by hand, each piece is crafted industrially at a Belgian family owned wood manufacturer founded 1924. The puzzle-like assembling ensures that the construction rich in detail comes across as seamless as possible in the design. Uncompromising precision is key and even the smallest inaccuracies will cause the production to start over.
