Hiromichi Konno designed the RIN chair in an elegant and futuristic design for Fritz Hansen. Japanese and Danish design traditions melt harmonically in this chair. The elegant chair has an innovative, progressive note. It invites to relax for hours and it embodies a new direction of traditional chair design.

“I wanted to create a chair which would be able to encourage and wake emotions. It should be apparently appealing, since one also had to feel a kind of elegance when one sits on it. That’s the reason why I chose a design that was poetic, simple, strong, casual and innovative at the same time. It was my aim to make the perfect chair from the start”, explained Hiromichi Konno.
