Rin™ Chair

Hiromichi Konno, 2008


The Rin Chair is a multifunctional chair created by the Japanese designer Hiromichi Konno.  It is designed to be in perfect harmony with Japanese and Danish design traditions.  The original idea for the Rin Chair came from Konno's fascination with nature and the curiosity surrounding the form of a bird's nest.  Immediately, he thought of how paradoxical that something so practical and functional could be so beautiful.  He also compares the appearance to another one of nature's wonders: a single standing flower and the confidence and beauty that it exudes.  The Rin Chair can be paired with a wide range of tables, depending on one's needs.  The chair is available in six colors, with or without upholstery and in a wide range of fabrics and leathers.  The star-shaped base, is available in two heights and is made in polished or powder-coated aluminum to match its shell.
