The Series 7™ chair is an icon in modern furniture history, designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1955. Its unique shape is timeless and incredibly versatile, displaying character without overpowering the eye. The chair is made from 9 layers of pressure moulded veneer for strength, flexibility and durability despite its slender form. This is the most popular design within Fritz Hansen’s chair collection. The 3107 has slim yet strong steel-tubed legs that complement the shell’s curved profile. Legs extend just beyond the edge of the seat, allowing chairs to be easily arranged in rows or stacked for storage. The base/legs are discreetly mounted to a circular disc beneath the seat further enhancing the clean, minimal aesthetic of Jacobsen’s design.
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.
