Normann Copenhagen Allez Chair
The Allez chair by Normann Copenhagen has a light and airy look, and the design idiom draws on recognizability. The organic curves of the shell mimic the shape of the body. Together with the reinforced backrest, this ensures optimal strength and seating comfort. The Allez chair gives a contemporary look and feel to the traditional café chair’s soft idiom and constructive strength in terms of design, functionality and sustainability. The design is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use
Normann Copenhagen Allez Chair was designed by Simon Legald: "Most chairs are based on a construction consisting of a type of shell and a frame. By breaking up the chair into components, it can be shaped and adapted to suit different environments. The construction was a key motivation in the design and is what makes Allez so innovative and unique."
Minimal material and optimal strength
The main body of Allez is molded polypropylene (PP), a highly durable thermoplastic material which in its purest form can be recycled several times without losing its properties. The design is made through an injection molding process whereby gas is pumped into the mold, shaping the polypropylene.
This technique enables the production of more complex items with greater tolerances in material thickness, while using only the exact material needed to make the chair, thus minimizing the amount of material used while increasing the strength of the product.
With a minimal amount of material in the design, Allez weighs just 3.6 kg, making it easy to move around. Despite the light weight, the Allez chair meets European standards Level 2 (EN 16139:2013 and EN 1022:2005) and ANSI/BIFMA X5.1 – 2017, which classify the design for heavy use in areas with a high user intensity, such as airport terminals, teaching institutions and night clubs.
About Normann Copenhagen
Normann Copenhagen is a way of living - a mindset. We love to challenge the conventional design rules. This is why you will find traditional materials put into untraditional use such as a Stone Hook made of Icelandic stones, vase made out of silicon and last but not least a dog made out of plastic.
