FOX

 


The FOX chair is available with two different mechanisms: an asynchronous and a synchronous. Both have a forward tilting seat angle and the newly developed dynamic back rest as main features.

On the FOX with asynchronous mechanism seat and back can move independently which makes the chair more individually adjustable. On the FOX with synchronous mechanism the movement between seat and back follow each other synchronously in a fixed ratio.

Both mechanisms can be adjusted to the user’s weight. In the asynchronous mechanism this is done by turning a handle on the right side and on the synchronous mechanism by using the regulator underneath the mechanism.

The FOX chair meets EN1335-1 type A and EN1335-2.

“Creativity is the variety of impressions, which are combined with memories and associations, and filtered through the individual view,” says designer Hans Thyge Raunkjær (* 1957). After training at the Danish Design School in Copenhagen, he worked as a stage designer of a theatre group. He then lived for seven years in Milan, where he also worked as a freelancer for the George Sowden studios. In 1991 he founded his own design studio.

Hans Thyge & Co. works with furniture-, concept- and product design. In addition, the company has a division dealing with 3D graphics, interior design, exhibition design and communications design.

For Labofa Hans Thyge designed the REEF Collection as well as the SHARK and GROOVY programmes – and in cooperation with Hans Sandgren Jakobsen – the COBRA products.
