Arne Jacobsen Egg Chairs for Fritz Hansen

Fritz Hansen is a Danish company with roots reaching back to the late 19th Century and the dawn of modern furniture production. But it was in the post WWII era that their influence went international through collaborations with key Danish designers like Arne Jacobsen. During a brief period in the 1950s and early 1960s, Jacobsen and Fritz Hansen produced the iconic designs that would solidify both of their reputations as masters of forward-looking yet timeless high-quality furniture. Jacobsen’s Ant, Series 7, Swan and Egg Chairs defined a clean, graphically organic look that remains current two generations after their initial release. Later additions such as the complete designs of Poul Kjaerholm set the stage for Fritz Hansen to emerge as one of the major modern furniture companies in the world today, with an expanding catalogue that includes designs by Piero Lissoni, and Jehs + Laub, and a reputation for quality that is second to none.
