The Danish designer Kasper Salto designed the Nap Chair for Fritz Hansen. Nap is a series of lightweight stackable chairs, which is designed to offer optimal comfort in every sitting position. Nap stands for normal, active and passive, because the sitting activity truly means continuous movement.
The back of the seat shell is high-gloss polished, while the matte front is provided with furrows to emphasize its geometry. To minimize noise and the risk of marks on the floor, the front and rear chair legs have foot plugs in different sizes.
The usage of injection moulded, through-coloured Nylon (polyamide- PA6) for the shell allows to reuse the material. Covering cap and distance blocks consist of nylon, TPE (thermostatic elastomers). Both are one coloured in the colour of the shell.
The frame of the chair consists of 14 mm powder-coated steel matching the colour of the chair, or also in chromed steel. The foot-plugs consist of black TPE. 8 to 10 chairs with or without arm-rests can be stacked on top of each other.
For environmental reasons, the chair can be disassembled easily, and the individual parts can be conveyed to the appropriate recycling. The main material of the chair, nylon, is a common synthetic nowadays, what makes the recycling easier. The synthetic can be granulated and the steel-parts are reusable.
The Nap chair from Fritz Hansen has been tested according to normal public use and approved after the EN 1728:2000, level 2.
The Nap chair from Fritz Hansen is also available in the following colours: butter yellow, pepper-grey and coffee-brown. The frame is either available in a chromed version or in the desired powder-coated colour. And also the fitting sitting cushions can be ordered.
