Sedan, Neri&Hu 2013

With their Sedan chair, Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu demonstrate how varying impressions can be created simply by changing the material or the colour of individual elements in a design. The chair’s seat and frame are conceived as visually distinct, contrasting forms: the seat appears to be suspended in the wood or metal frame like a sedan chair, giving the design its name. Although offering the ultimate in comfort, the armchair is not a ponderous, immobile object, but rather a lightweight, flexibly arrangeable piece of furniture. The seat comes in monochrome and two-tone versions, with or without padding. In conjunction with the frame in wood or colour-lacquered metal, a wide variety of colour and material combinations are possible, to either harmonise with a given interior or form a deliberate contrasting accent. The designers have thus conceived the perfect chair for private use and public areas as lounges, waiting rooms, reception aereas – something they had long sought for the interiors of their hotel projects – providing distinctive, comfortable and yet mobile and elegant seating.
