Fritz Hansen had an incredible display showcasing the NAP chair by Kasper Salto, from inspiration boards to prototypes to failed tests and more! It’s an inspiring way to see how much work and testing goes into a product that ends up so simple, functional, and beautiful. Fritz Hansen timeless aesthetic, discreet luxury and functionalism are very well suited for today’s demand for relevant design. They are focusing on well being and comfort and it shows with their new addition.
The Model 3107 chair by Arne Jacobsen and produced by Fritz Hansen is one of the most popular chairs in Danish design history. It was designed using a new technique in which plywood could be bent in two dimensions. It has been produced exclusively by Fritz Hansen A/S ever since its invention in 1955. It is also the most copied chair in the world.
The PK22 easy chair from Fritz Hansen's "Poul Kjaerholm collection". Simple elegance, a typical Kjærholm design - with the combination of steel and wicker or leather - in an exclusive and minimalist design. The discrete and elegant PK22 easy chair stands as an icon for Poul Kjærholm's work.
The Egg was designed in a typical Jacobsen style, where there was no fear of pushing the material to its limit, and often using entirely new materials to make his designs come true. See how the chair is made in this video.
It is believed to be inspired by Eero Saarinens "Womb chair", from which it gains some traits. In many respects, though, the Egg is a much more complete design.
