As many models that played a part in Fritz Hansen history, the lounge chair VIA57 has been drawn to supply a specific place, the VIA 57WEST building, by the architect Bjarke Ingels from BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) agency for his skyscraper W57 inaugurated in 2016 in Manhattan. VIA47 was created as an adaptable element to the contemporaneous life. That supposes frequent redesigning: its form allows to be gathered in pairs to create a small sofa which is favorable to conversations, scattered in a large lounge space to create a relaxed and warm atmosphere, or used as unique piece in a living room.
VIA57 chair is the work of the Danish collective KiBiSi, composed of Lars Larsen, Bjarke Ingels and Jens Martin Skibsted, whose works are exposed in many museums as the MoMA in New York and the National Center for the Plastic Arts in Paris. VIA57 is composed by a metallic structure, garnished with a polyurethane foam. Two different foam densities are available. That allows to obtain a firm comfort in depth and smooth in surface. The excellent quality of the used Kvadrat fabrics (Hallingdal 65 and Steelcut Trio) allows to keep the form when we sit down. Oak legs support the whole without any heaviness.
Dimensions: Depth 91cm x width 98cm x height 78cm. Seat height 41,7cm.
Guaranty: 5 years for legs and fabric, 10 years for the shell.
