The Japanese designer, Hiromichi Konno has created the RIN chair for Fritz Hansen; an elegant and futuristic design. The Japanese word RIN means an appearance that is stunning, elegant and courageous. 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 tradi- tional chair design into a new direction.
HIROMICHI KONNO 1972
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 poeti- cal, simple, strong, relaxed and innovative all at the same time. The goal from the beginning was to create the perfect chair, says Hiromichi Konno. Hiromichi Konno is a Japanese designer with an international outlook. He has studied in both Japan and Sweden and also lived in London for many years. His style is very unique and there is a special energy and something almost teasing about his designs. RIN is Hiromichi Konno's first collabora- tion with Fritz Hansen.
