9.5° Chair by Frama Denmark
Design by: B.Fex
9.5° started out as an iconic chair. The icon was experimented on repeatedly to explore all aspects of something as simple as a chair, with the purpose of creating an entirely new chair. The ambition was to create an object in the borderland between art and design. Sculptural, yet functional. 9.5° is part of the permanent collection at Trapholt Museum in Denmark, as well as a museum chair at the Knut Hamsun Museum in Norway. In 2014 it won the award for Furniture of the year.
The chair is titled at 9.5 degrees. By tilting the chair and then elevating one end of the seat back to a straight angle, a triangle was created. This actually made the construction stronger and reduced the need for a stabilizing cross rod.
