SERIES 7 CHAIR 60TH ANNIVERSARY
Fritz Hansen celebrates 60 years of service by the ‘Series 7’ chairs by revisiting the original colour palette by visionary designer Arne Jacobsen. This new couple in masculine dark blue lacquer shell, with powder-coated burnished legs, and his belle in Pale pink lacquer, with 24-ct gold plated legs are strikingly handsome.
The combination of form and function have been so successful in the ‘Series 7’ that the originals number in the millions, and in a nod to its popularity it’s been reproduced in the billions across the globe. A beautiful workhorse, copied but never mastered, the craftsmanship of simplicity is never easy.
The new clothes of the his and hers are silky to the touch, the dark blue so inky and dense, while the nude pink emphasizes the curvaceous lines of a true icon. Only available for the duration of 2015 and with each chair numbered these treasures are for the discerning eye of the true collector.
