Pair Chair for Fritz Hansen is a modular system of polymer, steel and plywood seating components with over 8,000 possible combinations.

Perfect Pairing

Our approach pairs the sensibilities of smart system thinking with a desire to create human objects that have the potential to become new heirlooms. The 8,000 possible combinations offers a product adaptable to any interior environment or specification. LAYER is the first British design agency to launch a product with the renowned Danish furniture brand.

Our Role

Informed by research into the needs and desires of specifiers, LAYER created a flexible chair system to meet the demands of a market increasingly focused on individuality and products tailored to the specific needs of an environment. We created over 30 prototypes and were closely involved in engineering the complex tooling for production.

We bring the consumer into our design process – which led us to understand that architects need more adaptability.

“Benjamin has inspired us and created something really new, with a strong emotional story, whilst still embracing the Fritz Hansen DNA.”

Jacob Holm – CEO, Fritz Hansen
