In 1872 the Copenhagen based Danish master carpenter Fritz Hansen received a trade authorisation which was to lay the foundation for one of the most successful furniture companies worldwide. Together with his son Fritz Hansen established a furniture manufacturing concern which won the respect and the recognition of not only his countrymen, but also over time an increasing international customer base. An important phase in the company's development came in the 1950s when Fritz Hansen started working on cooperations with designers such as Arne Jacobsen. Since those post-war years Fritz Hansen has continued to expand its product base; an expansion based on cooperations with international designers, including Sidse Werner. After opening her own design studio Sidse Werner created the Coat Tree for Fritz Hansen, a work which has been positively received ever since its original release in 1971. Anything but a boring dust catcher the Fritz Hansen coat rack impresses with its stylish looks and remains an attractive focal point for any contemporary room concept. Comprising 8 upward pointing bent steel tubes the Coat Tree provides, and despite its slender figure, sufficient space for the convenient storage of numerous items. Available in a monochrome or multi-coloured finish the Fritz Hansen Coat Tree is both playful and elegant, yet always decorative, which coupled with its functionality make it a truly indispensable piece of furniture.
