For the Milan furniture fair this year Republic of Fritz Hansen furnished an apartment styled by Christine Rudolph to present new colours or new pieces from the Fritz Hansen range. The concept of an apartment that looks lived in was taken back to Copenhagen, and recreated at the Pakhus showroom for the 3daysofdesign event.
There an upper space of the showroom has been fitted out as a dining room, a large sitting room, a study and a bedroom.
The Sammen dining chairs, upholstered in a dusky pink and the large Analog table, both designed by Jaime Hayón, were repeated from Milan as was the Essay table used as a large desk and the distinctive plan chest in the study area.
Danish homes often mix old and new … old family pieces of furniture with new designs or new designs of furniture against historic panelling and the apartment here was set out to show a mixture of different styles from the Fritz Hansen range … formal dining room/informal, almost rustic bedroom, stylish study area/comfortable sitting room showing the move towards big comfortable high-backed chairs rather than sofas.
