The Danish designer Kasper Salto designed the Nap Chair for Fritz Hansen. Nap is a series of easily stackable chairs, which is designed to offer optimal comfort in every sitting position. Nap stands for normal, active and passive, because the sitting activity truly means continuous movement.
Nap is available in two variances, with and without arm-rests. The back of the bowl is high-gloss polished, while the matt front is provided with furrows to emphasize its geometry. To minimize disturbing noises and the danger of openings in the floor, the front and back stool feet appear in different sizes.
The usage of injection moulded, through-coloured Nylon (polyamide- PA6) for the bowl allows to reuse the material. Covering cap and distance blocks consist of nylon, TPE (thermostatic elastomers). Either one coloured through the bowl.
The frame of the chair consists of 14 mm powder lacquered steel according to the colour of the chair, or also in chromed steel. The foot-plugs consist of black TPE. 8 to 10 chairs with or without arm-rests can be stacked on top of each other.
The chair is easily demountable for environmental reasons and each part of it can be accordingly reused. The main material of the chair, nylon, is a common synthetic nowadays, what makes the recycling easier. The synthetic can be granulated and the steel-parts are reusable.
The Nap chair from Fritz Hansen has been proofed according to the public reuse and approved after the EN 1728:2000, level 2.
The Nap chair from Fritz Hansen is also available in the following colours: butter-yellow, pepper-grey and coffee-brown. The frame is either available in a chromed version or in the desired powder lacquered colour. Furthermore it is available in all variations with and without arm-rests. And also the fitting sitting cushions can be ordered.
