Normann Copenhagen Form chair features a shell made of moulded plastic and a solid base in wood or steel. The seating comes with or without armrests and also as a barstool in two different heights.
The plastic shell and the legs are joined together thanks to moulded plastic connectors which fit perfectly to the seat. This sleek mounting solution provides a natural integration between the shell and the base enhancing a cohesive and unified look.
Simon Legald says: “”I had an idea of what the ideal chair should look like, and I have had this for many years. I wanted to unite the frame and the seat in a way I had never seen before”.
Form Chair blends industry and craftsmanship. The polypropylene shell is moulded using one single injection in order to achieve an extremely strong construction with the finest and clearest surface possible.
The base is available in oak, American walnut or steel. The wooden legs that are assembled and sanded by hand. Even the lacquered steel version is welded by hand without using screws in order to make the construction more durable.
“The goal was also to create a flexible design that could be adapted to countless types of bases, including the ones that will emerge in the future” Comment at Normann Copenhagen.
