The Republic of Fritz Hansen and their creative agency “Variety” were present at the Stockholm Furniture Fair from February 7 to 10, with their new vision of the coolest designs.
The visually bold and meticulously refined and minimalistic design of the Pair chair by British designer Benjamin Hubert is now introduced in a cool office “on wheels” version. Designed as a system of components with a wide variety of possible variations, the Pair chair is adaptable to any interior design whilst providing the required functionality.
While the original stackable chair featured four legs, the new version includes a star-shaped base on wheels, available in chrome and black finishes. The traditional plywood seat shell is paired with an injection-moulded polycarbonate backrest, creating an interesting interplay between old and new. The backrest is moulded with 10% transparency, elevating the plastic material to give it glass-like quality.
The Pluralis table by Danish designer Kasper Salto is as versatile as the diverse tasks to be handled during a work day. The table offers a multitude of possibilities and a unique combination of styling, sincere expression and functional features such as the optional cable bridge. The light, functional design makes it easy to create just the right atmosphere, whether formal or informal and the simple, welcoming design invites you to take a seat to catch up on your emails or make yourself comfortable for a lengthy board meeting. Pluralis is designed for doing business – with pleasure.
The Oxford Chair
The relaunched Oxford chair, originally designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1956, unmistakably references the original. Yet it is marked by a new, modern and personal expression with its more inviting back and the array of contemporary colours to enhance the ambience of any modern home office or workplace.
