Fritz Hansen Toasts its 150th Anniversary by Revisiting Iconic Pieces
Cabinetmaker Fritz Hansen began his namesake company in Copenhagen in 1872. Since then, the company’s visionary furniture by the likes of Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjærholm, Verner Panton, and Hans J. Wegner have redefined the Danish design tradition and indeed modern furniture at large. To toast its 150th anniversary, the brand raises a glass to some of its most famous pieces, reinterpreted with the use of special fabrics, colors, and materials, including new versions of Jacobsen’s Egg and Swan chairs, first made for the SAS Royal Hotel in 1958. (They were initially prototyped in chicken wire and plaster.) There are also never-before-produced pieces by Kjærholm, as well as his renowned PK61 coffee table now fabricated in Norwegian marble.
