Tokyo- and London-based Shin Azumi has designed a new chair for Danish brand Fredericia Furniture, which, with its horn-shaped backrest, has a playful zoomorphism about it. According to the manufacturer, the back element was the starting point for the designer as he set about creating the piece. ‘Azumi first defined the top edge and vertical supports of the backrest to get the best level of comfort and to create maximum support. All superfluous material from the backrest was then removed,’ says the company.
Beyond their sculptural function, the ‘horns’ also function as hooks for jackets, bags and the like. So what are you waiting for? Get hanging.
