ukt, der er relevant for brugerne”, siger designeren. ” Tanken bag NAP-stolen er at man skal kunne sidde godt i flest mulige stillinger. Navnet NAP er en forkortelse af de tre vigtigste siddestillinger: Normal, Aktiv og Passiv – for når vi sidder, er vi faktisk i konstant bevægelse,” fortsætter Salto.

Med sin buede form er NAP-stolen feminin og elegant. Nylonskallens konturer passer naturligt til det menneskelige legemes form, og de strukturerede bølger gør, at de mange timer, vi sidder ned, bliver komfortable . “Hvis folk, som sidder i stolen, bemærker, at de har siddet behageligt, mener jeg, at mit projekt er lykkedes,” siger Salto.

Kasper Salto er uddannet møbelsnedker og dimittend fra Danmarks Designskole i København. Det er derfor karakteristisk for hans arbejde, at han respekterer enkle former, materialer og god håndværksmæssig udførelse, og han tror på, at design kan øge livskvaliteten.

Kasper Salto har i de senere år vundet en række internationalt anerkendte priser for sine designs , og han har også skabt Fritz Hansens populære Ice™ stol og Little Friend ™ bordet.

Den nye NAP-stol bliver lanceret i forbindelse med Messen i Milano, i Republic of Fritz Hansens showroom på Corso Garibaldi 77, Milano, hvor den vil indgå i en spændende udstilling, som vil give et grundigt indblik i designprocessen, testningen og fremstillingen af den nye stol.

Den nye stol kommer på markedet i september 2010 i et udvalg af farver – fra Milk White, Butter Yellow, Pepper Grey, Coffee Brown.

NAP by Kasper Salto - in english

TIME FOR A NAP NAP is a new stackable chair designed by the award winning Danish designer Kasper Salto that furniture design brand Republic of Fritz Hansen will present at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan 2010. The NAP chair is a reflection of Kasper Salto’s approach to design. “For me design is about relevance. To always create a product that has relevance towards its user’s.” Say’s the design star. “For me the NAP chair is all about being able to sit well in as many positions as possible. The name NAP is an abbreviation of the three key sitting positions; Normal, Active and Passive – because sitting is in fact a constant movement.” Salto continues. With its curvaceous form, the NAP chair is feminine and elegant. The contours of the Nylon shell adapt naturally to the shape of the human body and the textured waves turn hours of sitting into an attractive proposition. “If people who sit in the chair notice they have been sitting comfortably, I think I’ve succeeded.” Say’s Salto. As a trained cabinet maker and a graduate from the Danish Design School in Copenhagen, Kasper Salto’s work is characterized by respect for simple forms, materials, good workmanship and a belief that design can improve life. Kasper Salto has won a string of internationally acclaimed design awards for his creations over the recent years and he is also the mastermind behind Fritz Hansen’s popular Ice™ chair & Little Friend™ table. The new NAP chair will be launched during the Salone at Republic of Fritz Hansen’s showroom on Garibaldi 77, Milan, in an exhilarating exhibition that will give a detailed insight into the design process, testing and manufacturing of the new chair. The new chair will be available on the market in September 2010 and comes in a selection of colours, from Milk White, to Butter Yellow, Pepper Grey and Coffee Brown. www.fritzhansen.com
