Pot™ Lounge Chair

pot™ lounge chair

pot™ lounge chair

Design Arne Jacobsen, 1959
Steel, foam, upholstery
Made by Fritz Hansen

"If I have a philosophy, it must be to sit at my drawing board." -Arne Jacobsen

In 1959 Arne Jacobsen created Gryden™ - in English meaning the Pot™ - a light take on an embracive lounge chair and originally designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. With the relaunch of the Pot, Fritz Hansen aims to revitalize another Arne Jacobsen signature sculpture for the modern interior. One that works as beautifully standing alone in a home lounge setting as it does arranged in pairs in a welcoming cocktail bar or the informal meeting room.

The shape is the same as the original design from 1959 - the seat and materials have been improved to meet today's standards for comfort and durability. The Pot comes in an endless variety of fabrics and leathers. It is small yet embracive, it is modern yet timeless and it is an Arne Jacobsen original.

Originally the Pot decorated both the SAS Royal Hotel's sophisticated Orchid bar and the astonishing winter garden. The chair too was found on every floor in the hotel across from the elevators, greeting guests with a recognizable meeting point. Needless to say, the Pot chair inhabited the hotel as much as its design icon siblings, the Egg™ and the Swan™.

The relaunched Pot chair is suitable for both private and contract use based on its renewed durability and timeless quality, both characteristics of the Fritz Hansen way of manufacturing and the Arne Jacobsen way of designing.

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 Kjćrholm, 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.
