Leave it to a Danish designer to embrace minimalism with a contemporary edge. Cecilie Manz crafted this sleek, unfussy line of tables and chairs for Fritz Hansen after much work-shopping to hone in on the right materials. The chair’s polypropylene shell is upholstered in a wool-nylon fabric and finished with natural leather piping, while the tabletops are made of compact laminate or Oregon pine. The seats and tables have a matching base: a grey-toned frame in glass-filled nylon, with smoothed edges like that of a pebble washed up on the seashore.
