Japanese minimalism meets Nordic aesthetics in Hiromichi Konno's nest shaped RIN™ chair.
Designed by Hiromichi Konno
Japanese designer Hiromichi Konno conceived the multifunctional RIN™ as a form in perfect harmony with Japanese and Danish design traditions. The original idea for the RIN chair came from Konno’s fascination with nature and his curiosity about the shape of a bird’s nest. He was spurred on by the immediate paradox of how something so practical and functional could be so beautiful. He also compares the chair’s appearance to another one of nature’s wonders: a single standing flower and the confidence and beauty it exudes. The chair is available in two colours with a mounted seat cushion or full front upholstery in a wide range of fabrics and leathers. The star base is made of polished or powder-coated aluminium to match the shell. A height adjustable version with castors is also available in polished aluminium.
