WELCOME TO THE ICE AGE
A beautiful, futuristic and multi-functional chair
has landed in The Republic of Fritz Hansen.
The name is Ice: a unique chair with an entirely new
personality. Ice incorporates all the virtues of classic chairs of
the past using modern materials of today.
Ice is equally suitable indoors and out - being able
to withstand all kinds of weather, the frame is aluminium while the
back and seat are made from flexible moulded plastic material.
The end result is a lightweight, comfortable chair.
The satin finish adds to the futuristic look of the chair. The future
being the place where designer Kasper Salto comes from.
The soft, dusty Ice colour range is inspired by nature:
Space light grey
Ocean dusty blue
Desert - beige
Valley dusty green
Volcano dark grey
Even though all colours will fade in time, the Ice colours are so
soft and the plastic material is of such a high quality that the colour
resistance is extraordinarily high.
For added comfort and change in use, Ice is available with an upholstered
seat, e.g. with the brand new Kvadrat fabric Blitz designed by Kasper
Saltos wife, Rikke Ladegaard. It is a very robust fabric with
a special dirt-repelling coating. The Blitz fabric is a Trevira quality
and the colour range includes 5 colours that elegantly match the colours
on the backrest.
