60 years of Series 7
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of this revolutionary design, Fritz Hansen have released a beautiful jubilee edition of the Series 7 in soft pastel pink and gold.
One of the most iconic furniture designs of all time, the Series 7 Chair by Arne Jacobsen has graced stylish commercial and residential interiors for over the past half a century.
Ever since it was first produced, the Series 7 Chair has always managed to look contemporary within a multitude of interiors. Designed by the legendary Arne Jacobsen, it wasn’t long before the Series 7 became one of the highest selling chairs in the history of Fritz Hansen and it’s easy to see why. Made from the finest quality materials and crafted to perfection, the Series 7 Chair was and continues to be recognised for its durability and immaculate form, with a smooth curved shell that can only be achieved by the most attentive of experts.
It was this level of expertise and knowledge that helped Arne Jacobsen to dominate the 1950s with Fritz Hansen, with releases such as the Egg Lounge Chair and Swan Lounge Chair coming soon after. The Series 7 Chair has also been released as a contemporary bar stool, swivel chair and children’s chair, which further demonstrates its success.
Despite having exactly the same form as previous editions, there is something remarkably different and enchanting about the pink anniversary edition of the Series 7 Chair. With its subtle pink lacquered shell and gold-plated legs, we can’t help but relate it to something out of a fairy tale from years gone by. This edition was also designed to draw a striking contrast between material and colour, which is a new concept for the Series 7 Chair.
Contrasting different materials, colours, shapes and forms has become a rather prominent trend within interior design, with bold prints and refined textures being paired with soft pastels and smooth metallics. Thanks to the beautiful juxtaposition of the two materials, this chair will work wonderfully within any interior, whether you want to keep things soft and feminine or make a statement within your home.
