Vico Magistretti believed in power lines and simplified forms. Of saying a lot with a little. The latter belief drew him away from his native Italy and lead to a variety of collaborations with Danish design houses. Most notably the Carimate for Fritz Hansen. To celebrate what would have been his 100th year, we’re delighted to reveal the iconic chair in glossy black and red colourways. All confident lines and punchy hues, it promises to infuse homes with a pop of positive energy.
Materials & Finishes
The flag line seat is inspired by the original straw seat of the model designed for the Carimate golf club in 1959. It honours the original aesthetic, without risking the organic decay associated with natural straw. Fritz Hansen has used European, GMOfree flax for the flag line - 110 meters of which are woven by hand to create the beautiful, organic seat. The solid wood frame is available in a glossy red or black finish.
Every chair is individually numbered for authenticity and longevity. A brass plaque under each seat marks its unique number.
