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, fl exibly arrangeable piece of furniture. With a fabric or leather cover combined with a frame made of wood or powder-coated steel, Sedan harmoniously fi ts in with any interior or forms a deliberate contrasting accent. The designers have thus conceived the perfect chair for private use and public areas such as lounges, waiting rooms, reception areas – something they had long sought for the interiors of their projects – providing distinctive, comfortable and yet mobile and elegant seating.

Neri&Hu are representatives of contemporary design from China. Their work is characterised by the constant occupation with contrasting cultures: “We consider ourselves bridges. Bridges for the next generation, bridges between past and future” and, not least, also as mediators between China and the West.
