He was spurred on by the immediate paradox of how something so practical and functional could be so beautiful. He also compares the appearance to another of one nature’s wonders: a single standing flower and the confidence and beauty it exuberates.

The shell is nest-shaped, made in moulded plastic and available in two colours, without upholstery or with a mounted seatcushion or a full front upholstery.

The base is a swivel star base made of polished aluminium. It is height adjustable and comes with the choice of either hard or soft castors with or without a break action.

RIN™ is Hiromichi Konno’s first collaboration with Fritz Hansen. Hiromichi Konno has created the RIN™ chair for Fritz Hansen; an elegant and futuristic design. The idea is to create a new type of chair that is in harmony with Japanese and Danish design traditions. The chair is elegant with a very innovative and progressive design. It invites you to sit in it for hours taking the traditional chair design into a new direction.

“I wanted to make a beautiful chair that can stimulate and awaken emotions in people. It must be able to appeal visually but also make us feel a form of elegance when we sit in it. Therefore, I have established something poetical, simple, strong, relaxed and innovative all at the same time. The goal from the beginning was to create the perfect chair,” says Hiromichi Konno.
