Arne Jacobsens main inspiration for chairs and the use of bent plywood came from Charles and Ray Eames, two more inspirational furniture designers who will be remembered for creating timeless classic designs.
Fritz Hansen Series 7 61 years of timeless design
Following this came the succession of the Series 7 in 1955, this was the real point that Jacobsens name, along with Fritz Hansen was propelled into furniture history.
The Series 7 was quickly labelled a design fit for the future which led to the infamous chair becoming the most sold stacking chair in design history. Becoming a style icon the Series 7 is seen by many as one of the finest examples of timeless design.
Still after six decades, through times of huge changes in technology, culture and lifestyle the Series 7 has remained as popular as ever. Over 5 million units have been sold since the chair was first released in 1951 and is one of the most copied reproduction chairs in the world.
The slim upholstered shell is manufactured using 9 layers of pressure moulded sliced veneer, covered in a high quality, durable upholstery supported on chromed steel legs. With the ability to stack, the Series 7 is an ideal chair for space conscious environments, meaning they can be neatly moved away when not needed.
