SINGAPORE (July 9): When planning your dining room, it is important to get the balance right. Keep in mind the colour scheme that you want. Do you prefer a square or round dining table? And will the chairs fi t into the overall look of the room?

That choice of chairs is very important and you will need to take into consideration the space you have. A bench may work if you want to accommodate many people, but we do recommend individual chairs so your family and guests can be seated comfortably and have enough elbow room.

Consider the N01 chair by Fritz Hansen, a wooden piece designed by Japanese design studio Nendo. This collaboration is seen as the perfect combination of Danish and Japanese philosophy in aesthetics and purity. The N01 chair puts the focus on nature and highlights the beautiful and timeless art of wood craftsmanship.

Oki Sato, founder of Nendo, says, “Both Japanese and Danish designs have a great respect for wood as a material, and also for the craftsmanship related to this. Having this in common, in spite of the distance or cultural difference,  it was possible for us to immediately ‘speak’ the same language in the process of product development. Last but not least, it is not designed for the sake of design. Instead, the design follows the function and the practical requirements of the chair.”
