Why You'll Love This Lounge Chair

VIA57 from Fritz Hansen has been specially designed for the VIA57 West building which casually leans into the Manhattan skyline and is a result of a unique partnership between Danish design group KiBiSi and architect Bjarke Ingels. Ingels, who is known for his innovative architecture and KiBiSi,which is known for its idea-driven approach, have taken Danish design abroad by reinventing the American skyscraper and presenting the VIA57™ chair. The partnership between BIG, KiBiSi and Republic of Fritz Hansen is a unique example of architecture and design going hand in hand, as it did in Arne Jacobsen’s SAS Royal Hotel in the 1960s.

With its adaptive and inventive design, the VIA57 is a chair that perfectly fits the modern lifestyle, allowing you to reconfigure it to suit your individual needs. Combining Scandinavian simplicity with American comfort, the VIA57 is both a chair and an inviting piece of sculpture with great visual appeal. The design expression softens the traditional lines of a room and offers uncompromising comfort.

The VIA57 is composed of a steel frame embedded in moulded soft polyurethane foam. Two different densities create the soft yet firm comfort. The thick seat upholstery offers great comfort without losing visual elegance while the rounded backside and the piping refers to Fritz Hansen’s master collection. The wooden base creates an elegant finish towards the floor letting the chair almost float in space.

The collection consists of an element that can be used in a multitude of ways. It can positioned individually so that you have easy access to the chair from several sides or it can be placed in sofa-like formations. This offers great flexibility hence the VIA57™ lounge chair can fit into various interiors auah as lobbies, receptions, lounges and private homes.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
