Danish design conquers America: Fritz Hansen sets new standards with the VIA57 armchair designed especially for a New York building.
New Danish icon
Via57 is much more than a chair - designer Lars Larsen is sure. In addition to Larsen, the industrial designer, architect Bjarke Ingels and market expert Martin Skibsted have contributed to the design of the iconic armchair. Together, the three designers form the Trio KiBiSi, founded in 2009.
But what makes VIA57 so special? What first comes to mind is the unusual form. On closer examination, however, it becomes clear that it is primarily the shifted arrangement of seat and chair legs that distinguishes VIA57 by Fritz Hansen from the crowd.
This extravagant design, however, is not just for the eye, but has its purpose: you can settle down in a variety of ways on the VIA57 design armchair. And: VIA57 not only works as a stand-alone furniture, but also in a group. Two armchairs positioned side by side even form a small couch. Just awesome!
American skyscraper meets Scandinavian block of houses
The design armchair VIA57 was originally designed for the New York building, which is located directly at the Hudson River and which houses apartments, gardens and community facilities.
Based on the tetrahedral geometry of the building VIA57WEST the shape of the armchair reflects the architecture of the building. The reinterpretation of the American skyscraper - enriched by the charm of a Scandinavian block of houses - is also reflected in the design of the matching armchair: American comfort meets Scandinavian elegance with the VIA57 armchair.
