About Fritz Hansen
The history of the Danish design studio began in Copenhagen on October 24, 1872, when founder Fritz Hansen registered as a cabinetmaker. He started with furniture details, making such items as armchair feet, balusters and metal frames. In the early 1930s, he expanded into high quality industrial furniture. The company entered a new level in 1934, when it began its creative partnership with Danish furniture design icon Arne Jacobsen, one of the most prominent representatives of functionalism, and designer of furniture, interiors, fabrics, glass and metal goods. This cooperation resulted in three visionary chairs: Ant™ in 1952, and Egg™ and Swan™ in 1958. For more information on Fritz Hansen, please visit www.fritzhansen.com.
