Where did the name 3107 originate?
The chair 3107 is a further development of the Ant chair (3100) and is therefore also called the Series 7.
One of the biggest successes of Danish furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen is without question Arne Jacobsen's Series 7, which was developed by the designer in 1955 in context of his Ant Chair. The three-legged Ant Chair did not have the expected success and so Arne Jacobsen was asked by Fritz Hansen to develop another chair made of moulded plywood - this time with four legs. This result was the Series 7 chair that until today has sold over 5 million copies, making it the the most successful product in Fritz Hansen's history. And raising it to a genuine classic modern furniture design. Jacobsen subsequently developed a whole series, all featuring the same seat shell combined with different bases and thus created a chair family which can be used in various situations. The foresightedness of the Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chair was not only the form but principally the production process of the chairs. Although the lamination technique was known, it was perfected by Jacobsen and Fritz Hansen in their moulded plywood chairs: the layered glued wood structure is three-dimensionally deformed under the influence of steam. This seat and backrest of Fritz Hansen's 3107 are made from one piece, with the seat narrowing in the middle, a necessary construction decision which ultimately defines the shape of the unmistakable 3107 chair.
