Japanese and Danish design traditions come together as one in the new dining chair known as N01, which can be admired in an exclusive preview of the Republic of Fritz Hansen’s collaboration with Nendo Studio this weekend at 10am - 7pm at House of Fritz Hansen on Soi Somkid off Ploenchit Road (BTS Chidlom).

Minimalist yet highly detailed, N01 is a chair fit for the moments of sharing at home. Nendo represents a design language that both complements the Fritz Hansen design DNA and at the same time challenges it with a new take on working with genuine craftsmanship. N01 combines a seat and a back in nine layers of veneer, characteristic of the Fritz Hansen stacking chair collection. 

While the base is a pure and elegant interpretation of working with solid wood, millimetre by millimetre, the wooden design is an illustration of aesthetics and functionality. It represents a chair that is not only comfortable but also stunning to look at from every angle. Nendo's meticulous work with perfecting every centimetre is represented in the way the chair fits with the table when placed around it in a dining room setting. N01 is a very honest design that tells the story of the warmth of wood and of uncompromising quality. Its light appearance is serene and seductive and its construction is clever and crafted with Japanese perfectionism.
