Created by the merging of Danish and Japanese aesthetics and purity, N01 brings back nature and embraces today's modern life. A life where the dining room is not only a place to enjoy a meal but it’s also a place to be productive, a place for conversation, a place to relax from a busy workday or just everyday life.
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. Millimeter by millimeter, 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 centimeter 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 appearance is serene and seductive and its construction is clever and crafted with Japanese perfectionism.
