fritz hansen's choice ant chair

Design Arne Jacobsen, 1952
Steel, laminated wood
Made in Denmark by Fritz Hansen

In 2016, the Ant has been relaunched in a new, attractive edition. Fritz Hansen's deisgn team now presents the beautiful one-piece shell chair in dyed grey oak veneer and with powder-coated bronze legs. A beautiful combination which perfectly suits the original, organic forms and which makes the Ant relevant in time.

Fritz Hansen's Choice Ant chair is completely in keeping with Fritz Hansen's general design philosophy. The materials are sublime, pure and inviting, have clear references to Danish Design and the nearly silver grey color will age gracefully. Due to its exquisite crafting the Ant chair will last for a lifetime in terms of both its design and quality.

The shell is made from molded veneer - beech on the inside and dyed grey oak on the outside. The base is made of 14mm powder-coated steel pipe in a dark bronze color with four legs and black leg ferrules. Model 3101 Ant chair is stackable.

Arne Jacobsen was very productive both as an architect and as a designer. His cooperation with Fritz Hansen dates back to 1934. The Ant and Series 7 chairs, produced in 1952, propelled both Jacobsen and Fritz Hansen's names into furniture history. At the end of the 50's Arne Jacobsen designed the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, which introduced the Egg, the Swan, the Swan sofa and Series 3300 to the design world. Arne Jacobsen was and is an admired and outstanding designer. His furniture and other design work have become a national and international heritage.

Arne Jacobsen

Danish architect and designer Arne Emil Jacobsen (1902 – 1971) is remembered for his contribution to architectural Functionalism as well as for the worldwide success he enjoyed with simple but effective chair designs. After a spell as an apprentice mason, Jacobsen was admitted to the Architecture School at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, where from 1924 to 1927 he studied under Kay Fisker and Kaj Gottlob, both leading architects and designers. After completing architecture school, he first worked at city architect Poul Holsoe's architectural practice. In 1929, in collaboration with Flemming Lassen, he won a Danish Architect's Association competition for designing the "House of the Future" which was built full scale at the subsequent exhibition and helped Jacobsen be recognized as an ultra-modern architect. Later, the Ant and Series 7 chairs, produced in 1952 as a collaboration with Fritz Hansen, propelled both names into furniture history.
Fritz Hansen was established in 1872 by the visionary cabinetmaker of the same name. Since then, Fritz Hansen has become a natural part of both Danish and international design history. Today, it is an exclusive and international design brand. The history of Fritz Hansen is characterized by stupendous craftsmanship, unique design and an inherent sense of premium quality. Leading architects and furniture designers from all over the world have regularly contributed to the collection with beautifully shaped and functional furniture that seamlessly meet through the use of innovative techniques and new materials. Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjærholm, Piero Lissoni, Kasper Salto and Morten Voss – the stellar string of designers is long and the list of furniture of classic and iconic fame is even longer.
