Rin Chair From Fritz Hansen Hiromichi Konno
In 2009 at the Stockholm Furniture Fair, Fritz Hansen released their latest chair design from Japanese designer Hiromichi Konno. The HK10 “Rin Chair” is the next Danish Modern “icon hopeful” that is also in harmony with Japanese design traditions.
The Fritz Hansen chair fits right in with the long history of mid-century modern furniture from Fritz Hansen that has some familiar characteristics like a circular shape and a minimal base structure.
Upon graduating from product design from Umea University in Sweden, Konno worked with design great Ross Lovegrove and helped create the Go Chair for Bernhardt Design. The classic modern Rin Chair features an injection-molded shell available in six colors.
