Fritz Hansen

Fritz Hansen was founded in 1872, when Fritz Hansen, a Danish carpenter, founded his own furniture company and in 1915 introduced his first chair in steam bent wood. In 1934, Fritz Hansen began his collaboration with Arne Jacobsen resulting in some of the famous, classic icons of Danish Design including the ‘Ant‘ (1952), the ‘Series 7‘ (1955), the ‘Grand Prix‘ (1957) the ‘Swan‘ (1958), and the ‘Egg‘ (1958).

Other famous collaborations have resulted in Piet Hein‘s super-elliptical table from 1968 and in 1982 Fritz Hansen acquired the rights to a major part of Poul Kjærholm‘s furniture collection.

Since the 1980s continuing into the new millennium, Fritz Hansen has added new designs to the collection including the Essay table by Cecilie Manz, T-NO1 by Todd Bracher, RIN chair by Hiromichi Konno, Plano tables by Pelikan Design and the Ice series by Kasper Salto.
