CLIPS - Chairs

The chair design has developed over the years into three versions.

CLIPS I
Fenhann developed the Clips I chair while he was still a student at The Danish Design School. The idea was to play with the two-dimensional plywood and transform a crisp 4-mm fibre sheet into a functional three-dimensional chair. With a reference to old Egyptian chairs, the backrest is bent and inserted into the seat to make a triangular construction in combination with the back legs. The round holes in the back prevent the plywood from breaking and emphasise the way the material is bent like a paper clip.
The Clips I chair was awarded the Sydform stipendium 2003

CLIPS II
In 2009, Fenhann developed a new version of his Clips chair prototype from 2000, experimenting with red laminate on one side in order to highlight the transformation of the two-dimensional wood sheet into three-dimensional form.
Exhibited at “Branching Out”, Bella Center, 2009

CLIPS III
In 2013, a limited edition of the Clips chair was produced in ash plywood in order to make the chair strong enough for daily use while preserving its thin proportions.
