Ant chair des. Arne Jacobsen, 1951 - Pale rose / Black - made by Fritz Hansen


How gorgeous is the pale rose shell and black base on Jacobsen's iconic Ant™ Chair? We love the contemporary prettiness of it.

The Ant™ chair’s visual expression is delicate and artful, much like the curves of a musical instrument. Designed by Jacobsen in 1952, the chair is made from nine layers of pressure moulded veneer. Its elegant shape disguises its remarkable strength and comfort. The 3101 model retains the sculptural simplicity of the original three-legged Ant design while expanding its distinct, expressive profile to suit a myriad of interior settings. Although the four-legged version of the Ant chair was occasionally produced during Jacobsen’s lifetime, it was only put into official production in 1971.

About Arne Jacobsen

As a child growing up in Copenhagen, it’s said that Jacobsen painted over the Victorian wallpaper in his bedroom. Young Arne didn’t cover his walls with typical childish drawings or paint the ornate wallpaper boyish blue – he decided to paint his room entirely white. This decision may seem typical today, but in the early twentieth century white walls were not yet in fashion. From the very beginning,  Jacobsen was ahead of his time. 

Jacobsen’s creative process centered on his strict consideration of detail. For more than half of the twentieth century, his ideas shaped the landscape of Danish design, rippling out from Scandinavia to influence architects and designers around the world.
