Sedan Chair

Designed 2015

With their Sedan Chair, Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu complete their product family with a lightweight, elegant and comfortable chair which can be used both at dining tables and as a visitor’s chair.

As is the case with the Sedan Lounge Chair, the special attraction of the design is the contrast between the seat shell and frame: the seat shell visually wraps over the frame like a cover, creating two functional areas that complement each other and generate suspenseful contrasts with different materials. The plastic seat shell is available in monochrome versions, with or without flat upholstery. A variety of color and material versions results in combinations with frames made of different woods which can be selected to fit in with any interior, either harmoniously or intentionally as contrasting accents. With the Sedan series, neri&hu designed the perfect furniture for the contract segment which they had long searched for to furnish their hotel projects – seating furniture with a strong character, comfortable and yet lightweight and elegant.

Chair. Base in solid wood, natural or black-stained, with clear varnish. Seat in black or white rigid polyurethane foam or polyurethane upholstered seat covered in fabric or leather.

Designer

Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu founded the neri&hu Design and Research Office in 2004 in Shanghai in order to take on international architecture and design projects. Together they have become one of the most dynamic design forces in China today.

The two architects began their studies in Berkeley, California. Lyndon Neri went on to earn his master’s degree at Harvard. For over ten years he was a partner, and project manager for Asia, at Michael Graves&Associates in Princeton and also worked for various New York architecture firms. Rossana Hu continued her studies with a master’s degree in architecture and urban planning from Princeton and worked in the architecture studios of Michael Graves&Associates as well as various major architecture firms in New York City and San Francisco.

In addition to their architecture and design office, Neri and Hu are the founders of Design Republic, a concept store for outstanding international design in Shanghai. Both architects are also active designers and have created products for a number of European companies such as Mooi, Lema, BD Barcelona and Meritalia. Under the brand ‘neri&hu’, they sell their own product line, for which they have received multiple international awards. Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu have taught at Princeton, Harvard and the University of Hong Kong. They are joint editors of a book titled ‘Persistence of Vision’, the first in a series of publications dealing with architecture and urban planning challenges in Chinese mega-cities.
