Design Story

In 1952, and after many years of collaboration the Danish furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen recorded its first major success with the three-legged Ant chair by Arne Jacobsen. And released a chair design which was to become the predecessor of the company's best selling chairs: The Series 7 Chair, also from Arne Jacobsen. The ergonomic shape of the seat shell was for its day genuinely revolutionary, makes the Fritz Hansen chair unmistakable for later generations, and is just one of the reasons why the Series 7 Chair is still regarded as a design classic. The seat shell characterises the Series 7 family and can be combined with different bases, a feature which makes the Jacobsen chair in all its variants the perfect solution for any space. And not just the shell itself was revolutionary, also the production process developed by Fritz Hansen and Arne Jacobsen set new standards. Although the glued plywood moulding process employed was in itself not new, Arne Jacobsen and Fritz Hansen, perfected it through the addition of steam and thus achieved the one-piece, three-dimensional shape that makes the Series 7 so characteristic. The swivel armchair is arguably the most functional of the Series 7 chairs and simultaneously one which offers the highest level of seating comfort. In the Fritz Hansen swivel chair the standard chrome plated tubular steel frame is replaced by a stable swivel base including castors, thus offering functionality, comfort and mobility in one chair design.
