Furniture: Form furniture by Simon Legald for Normann Copenhagen

First designed as Simon Legald’s graduation project from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2012, the collection of injection-moulded polypropylene shell chairs is the result of more than 20 prototypes created over three years.

“I had an idea of what the ideal chair should look like, and I have had this idea for many years,” said Legald. “I have analysed hundreds of chairs from different periods during the design process.”

The basic Form Chair features a shell seat and a range of wooden bases. It is available with or without armrests, and as a barstool in two different heights.

To enable a variety of current and upcoming base designs, Legald has come up with a mounting solution consisting of four moulded-plastic connectors. These were designed to replace the traditional approach of boring a different set of holes into the chair for each possible base.

“The goal was also to create a flexible design that could be adapted to countless types of bases, including the ones that will emerge in the future,” said a spokesperson for Normann Copenhagen.

“The connection principle developed especially for the Form Chair makes it possible to mount different types of bases in the same holes. As a result Form is a homogenous and aesthetic design regardless of which angle you look at the chair from.”
