Ace Lounge Chair.
Design: Hans Hornemann for Normann Copenhagen
Ace is not any furniture collection, but rather a new and groundbreaking way of living high-end design. Inspired by his own life in Copenhagen, young designer Hans Hornemann envisioned a new furniture concept in which high-quality and luxurious design goes hand in hand with the functional and convenient 'flat-pack' system.
The Ace collection is an engineering feat on its own! Ace can be easily assembled and disassembled, making it easy to transport and adapt to new spaces. However, this does not compromise high quality. The Ace series has been designed and manufactured down to the finest attention to detail.
Ace Lounge Dimensions:
Dimensions: L 56 cm. D 70 cm. H 80 cm. Seat height:41 cm. 11,6 kg.
The back is constructed of molded PU foam on a base of molded veneer for flexibility and the highest possible sitting comfort. The seat is made in molded PU foam with a steel reinforcement. The legs are coned steel tube which makes the chair appear more elegant. On top there is a welded flange to improve stability. Legs are easily mounted. Assembly manual included. Textile or leather upholstery.
Ace combines intelligent engineering with an elegant look. In its interior, Ace is constructed from moulded plywood, covered with moulded foam in both seat and back for the highest comfort and flexibility. On the surface, Ace curved and soft shape is topped of by an inviting upholstery that emphasizes the chair relaxed appearance.
About the designer:
The young Danish designer Hans Hornemann graduated as a Master of Engineering in Industrial Design from the University of Aalborg 2014. Hans Hornemann emphasizes the combination of aesthetic simplicity and high functionality in expressive and light-hearted design. He is fascinated by the industrial and technical solutions in design in terms of both material and mode of expression. Natural materials often inspire him, and he endeavors to strip the design to its bone and portray the honesty found in the materials.
"In my opinion design should be a balance between an aesthetic minimalism and functionality with a user friendly experience. As a designer I aim to be true to the material used in order to enhance and bring out its natural qualities and characteristics. I value clean and minimalistic lines that add a new spin to the classic design. In creating a design, I think it's important to start from scratch and bring a new contribution to the products idiom, expression or functionality."
