Product description

Shape is a completely new addition to this year's collection from Fredericia Furniture. This chair was designed by Susanne Grønlund, and when she presented the chair many commented that the form of the chair with the large holes in the back resembl

ed a big smile. This expression pretty much sums up the style of Susanne Grønlund.
"I like it when things get a touch of humour," says the designer Susanne Grønlund.
She has created the chair in the form-tensioned materia

l, and the design builds on classic Scandinavian designer traditions from the 50's pioneered by Arne Jacobsen. Susanne Grønlund however likes to confront straight lines and masculine designs, and in this way she has created a chair with feministic

and organic forms that remain simple and true to the materials used.
"The geometry of the chair is tight, a characteristic that offers flexibility, strength, lightness and comfortable seating," says Susanne Grønlund.
The chair

was designed with a slightly flexible backrest. A person seated can sit and rock slightly on the chair, e.g. while enjoying breakfast, or one can quite simply sit back and enjoy this big smile.
