Fritz Hansen and Benjamin Hubert of Layer have buddied up to create Pair Chair, a new modular seating system with over 8,000 unique seating possibilities.
October 12th, 2016
Hubert’s super adaptable chair is the first British-designed concept launched through Danish furniture house Fritz Hansen.
After three years in development, and about 30 prototyping stages, Pair Chair neatly embraces the Fritz Hansen mid-century aesthetic, with a new layer of functionality and flexibility, and a refreshed palette. The chair is crafted from a pressed plywood shell with a strong sense of geometry. More traditional materials are paired with modern techniques – the seat shell is coupled with an injection moulded polycarbonate backrest. The Pair Chair backrest is moulded with 10% transparency, which elevates the plastic material by giving it a glass-like quality.
“At Layer we invest our time in helping companies understand how smart furniture systems can help their business grow,” says Hubert. “Pair Chair represents a super flexible system with up to 8,000 possible combinations to meet the demands of a market increasingly focused on individuality and products tailored specifically to the needs of the environments they are use in.”
Components of the Pair Chair include two back rest options with and without arms, available in a choice of four colours. There are two leg options in five colours, one seat in five colours, and an optional cushion available in a choice of 40 colours. A perfect pairing, and a specifiers dream.
