THE GOAL FROM THE BEGINNING WAS TO CREATE THE PERFECT CHAIR
Hiromichi Konno (1972)
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. He now works for large companies and manufacturers around the world, and he is particularly in demand in Scandinavia. 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.
