SWOON | Fabric easy chair
Fabric easy chair with armrests
The Swoon easy chair is Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou’s take on a new chair perfectly in keeping with Fredericia’s other collections. A dynamic mix of classic and modern lines which are softer, more sensual and equally eye-catching.
A one-piece shell chair merging the armrest, back and seat to create a perfect sculpture.
Swoon refers to a state of unusual delight and enthusiasm, which was also the response when the chair was first presented to the Fredericia team and a group of international architects.
An important aspect of Space Copenhagen’s activities is its work with the conceptual interior design of hotels and restaurants all over the world. In connection with such commissions, Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou of ten had difficultie finding a small easy chair, something between a conventional lounge chair and a typical armchair. It seemed that such a chair was not available on the market.
Swoon represents a fusion of Space Copenhagen’s flair for sculptural lines and for creating a sense of congruity between furniture and interior and Fredericia’s experience with classic furniture production. Swoon has largely been designed by hand to ensure that the chairis as soft and inviting as possible, letting the body and mind immediately feel at peace.
Working with such a complex piece of furniture has been an educational process for Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, and one which must incorporate qualities such as aesthetics, comfort and durability before it can truly be called an easy chair.
Swoon is a stylish meeting between an injection-moulded shell upholstered in either leather or fabric and soft fabric cushions. The legs come in lacquered oak, oiled oak, smoked oak or black lacquered oak.
