'Hensen' chair by Kranen/Gille for New Duivendrecht

Inspired by the form of wharf cranes, two Dutch designers Jos Kranen and Johannes Gille of the Kranen/Gille design studio have realised this delicate, angular chair for the recently-founded furniture label New Duivendrecht. Presented earlier last month in Milan as a part of New Duivendrecht’s impressive, 9-piece collection, ‘Hensen’ is available in three colour versions; blue, white and black.

More about ‘Hensen’:

 

‘The towering wharf cranes situated in front of Kranen/Gille’s first studio at the banks of the river Maas sparked the shape and construction of the Hensen chair. In spite of the appealing industrial feel the chair is light on the eye and very comfortable.Hensen Chair comes standard in black white and a light blue. As well in steel as upholstered with fabric or leather (only black or white).’
