My Chair Wood by Normann Copenhagen
My Chair is a simple, all-round stackable chair in a timeless design. With this chair, the designer Nicholai Wiig Hansen has reinterpreted the classic shell chair and added a striking elegance and harmony. The rounded corners and curved waist counterbalance the rigorous design of the chair and give it a warm and welcoming feel.
On closer inspection of the chair you will gradually notice a number of understated details, bearing witness to the fact that all of its features are deliberate and carefully worked out. For example, no standard parts have been used on the chair, but instead customized solutions have been implemented allowing a completely aesthetic experience no matter from what angle you look at the chair.
Apart from the aesthetics of the chair, a great deal of depth has been gone into areas such as durability and comfort. The shell consists of moulded plywood, a durable material that is also flexible and moves with the body. The curves of the shell follow the shape of the body while the angle of My Chair's backrest is slightly more open than on most other chairs. This makes it more comfortable when you lean back.
