4 leg ant chair color

by Arne Jacobsen, from Fritz Hansen

4 leg ant chair color

Design Arne Jacobsen, 1952
Chromed steel base, laminated wood
Made by Fritz Hansen

Despite its minimalist and svelte form, the Ant chair by Arne Jacobsen is extremely comfortable due to its shell design while achieving a beauty and elegance which has made Jacobsen's first stacking chair one of his best-known designs. Although a revolutionary design, the Ant was not an immediate hit when first launched by Fritz Hansen in 1952. The chair had only 3 legs and no arms!

The back and seat are made of one piece of laminated wood with 9 layers of molded veneer and 2 layers of cotton textile in-between. The lamination process coupled with the qualities inherent in the wood make the Ant flexible enough to adjust to the body's contours and movements. The Ant is a stackable, wooden chair on a thin chrome or satin chrome steel base with a choice of either natural wood veneer or colors in lacquer or lazur. Available in your choice of two heights.

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.

Note:
colored ash finish: wood grain is clearly visible through the color.
