As Trinidad chair, which was designed by Nanna Ditzel, celebrates its 25th anniversary, Fredericia presented a selection of new shades, including smoked, grey and light grey oak. By leaving the veneer with a visible wooden structure, the aesthetic is said to create a warm atmosphere in any setting, from residential homes to workspaces and restaurants. These shades become especially pronounced when combined with a frame in the new warm-matt color Flint.
The Trinidad chair has a curved shell to improve comfort. The cut-out fretwork in the seat and back compensates for a range of features that are typically impossible in plywood shell furniture. Namely, the body is ventilated while seated, and the curved shell provides acoustic properties. These qualities make Trinidad a popular chair for event spaces where large-scale seating is needed.
