Fritz Hansen 60th Anniversary Edition Swan Chair
The iconic Swan™ easy chair combines a deep seat with high armrests that wrap around everyone who takes a seat in it. To mark its 60th anniversary Fritz Hansen has created a limited edition Swan in exclusive materials and a pure and natural colour palette which perfectly compliments Arne Jacobsen's original design.
The Swan chair comes in a limited edition of just 1958 pieces. Each chair will feature a special 60th-anniversary leather engraving, with numbering and is available until 31st December 2018. This exclusive special edition design appeals to all the senses. The materials vary from the super-soft and serene pure natural leather to the 23 karat gold-coated base, both of which will patina and create an expression of their own over time.

Materials & finishes
Seat shell in polyurethane foam with glass fibre reinforcement. This 60th Anniversary edition is finished in pure natural aniline leather featuring beauty marks such as scars, tiny insect bites and visible necklines – all of which reflects the natural life the leather hides are the remains of. Please note that the colour will darken and obtain a more vintage look with time, making every item unique whilst exposed to sunlight and usage.
The base consists of a swivel centre part (diameter 38x2mm) of welded steel tubing and a 4-star base in injection moulded aluminium. In this version, the classic aluminium surface has been plated with 23 karat gold and the result has an almost satin gloss adding to the exclusive expression of the limited edition design. Like the leather, this carefully selected base will change slightly in colour over time. The gloss becomes less shiny and a tad darker, underlining the patina of the design as it ages with beauty.
Standard 5 year warranty. My Republic Extended Warranty includes 5 years for the base and 10 years for the shell and leather.
