The No42 / #42 also known as the Z-Chair by Kai Kristiansen is one of the iconic chairs of Danish design in the 1960's. There is a rationel explanation behind its frame: It's a comfortable chair to sit in and the details designed for functionality are aesthetic, too. The armrest is visually pleasing with it's significant profile, the tilting function on the backrest makes it comfortable whether working, dining or resting, and the back legs turn inwards to not take up too much room - if I walk around it, I won't fall over the legs. The production of Model 42 contunued up through the 80's as it stayed attractive both in Denmark and in the US.

The chair was produced by Schou Andersen Møbelfabrik and is currently produced by Miyazaki Chair Factory.
