Republic of Fritz Hansen™ launches minuscule™; a formal chair and table designed for an informal setting by the award winning Danish designer Cecilie Manz. The name minuscule represents the informal and understated style that the Scandinavians are truly famous for; why spell it out in capitals when discrete simplicity makes a clear statement.

minuscule is an uncomplicated yet sophisticated design that was initiated by a series of experimental workshops and creative dialogue between the designer Cecilie Manz and Republic of Fritz Hansen. The workshops involved only material and there was no brief or creative constraints. "For me design always starts with the material. I need to have all the materials in my hand before I can feel if it is something I can work with," says the designer, Cecilie Manz. minuscule combines the tradition of craftsmanship and industrial production. The shell of the seat is upholstered and hand stitched in a light weight, yet durable textile and features a fine leather detail that follows the contours of the shell.

The curvaceous shell is held by a base frame formed in plastic, a contrasting yet complimenting contemporary material. The straight lines on the base frame are softened like the curves on a stone washed up on the beach, a source of inspiration behind the design details of minuscule.

The upholstery of the outer shell is available in two tones of grey, a colour that fascinates Cecilie Manz because it is the only colour that is able to absorb all other colours. The inner shell is upholstered in a choice of colours ranging from rust orange and ocher, to a dark ultramarine blue.

The lounge table features the same base as the chair in grey plastic with a table top in Oregon Pine or white compact laminate. The minuscule chair and table series is less structured and therefore adaptable to different environments, whether it be an airport lounge, breakout area or for private living.

minuscule is an extension to Republic of Fritz Hansen's collection of timeless design icons and will be launched at their showroom in Milan during Salone Internazionale del Mobile in April 2012. The new collection will be available to purchase from Republic of Fritz Hansen and authorized dealers from September 2012.

Checking out Milan, part 1

The 51st Salone del Mobile and all its side shows remains one huge cultural event. By contrast, the exhibitors at the trade-fair halls in Rho prefer restraint and no longer try to parade their novelties at any price.

Female success beyond embroidered cushions

There is a noticeably large number of women in design in Scandinavia. From Nanna Ditzel to Front Design, female designers have always played an important role in Nordic countries. Does this have something to do with design style? Or is it quite simply a question of equality?
