Designed by Cecilie Manz and Republic of Fritz Hansen, the Minuscule chair was launched yesterday. With no creative rules or boundaries, the conversation centered mainly around the material. The shell of the seat is upholstered in a light weight and durable textile and with a perfect leather detail along the edge. The upholstery of the outer shell is available in two tones of grey. According to the Republic’s website, grey is fascinates Cecilie Manz because it is the only color that is able to absorb all other colors. The inner shell is upholstered in colors ranging from rust orange and ocher, to a dark ultramarine blue. Shown in some of these pictures is the coordinating lounge table made from Oregon Pine or a white laminate, and with a matching base. I think this new design will be an instant classic, and I am very excited to hear how this design performs under different uses. And of course, if the Republic wants to send me one, I would only be too happy to test one myself!
