Series 7, Arne Jacobsen, 1955
The Series 7™ designed by Arne Jacobsen is by far the most sold chair in the history of Fritz Hansen and perhaps also in furniture history. The pressure moulded veneer chair is a further development of the classic Ant™ chair. The four-legged stackable chair can be seen as the culmination of the use of the lamination technique. A technique refined to perfection during the Twenties and Thirties by Søren C. Hansen, the grandson of the founder, Fritz Hansen. The visionary Arne Jacobsen exploited the possibilities of lamination to perfection resulting in the iconic shape of the chair. Series 7 represents the chair in the Fritz Hansen collection with the widest range of applications. It is lightweight and stackable and offers options such as armrests, castors etc.
Series 7™ comes in ten different finishes: maple, ash, cherry, walnut or dark stained oak with clear lacquer as well as coloured ash, painted beech, lacquer or high-gloss lacquer in a variety of colours. All chairs are made of laminated moulded sliced veneer. Front upholstery or full upholstery is available in a wide range of fabrics and leathers, including welt leather. Series 7 is also available with matching armrests. Base: 4 legs (stackable in three heights), a height-adjustable swivel with castors, or a low or high barstool base. All bases are made of chromed steel tubes, and the 4-legged version is also available in satin chrome. A children's version is available in beech or lacquer. The series also includes a line of accessories.

It was succeeded by the Series 7™ in 1955. This propelled his and Fritz Hansen's names into furniture history. Arne Jacobsen was very productive both as an architect and as a designer. At the end of the 50s Arne Jacobsen designed the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, and for that project the Egg™, the Swan™, the Swan™ sofa and Series 3300™. Arne Jacobsen was and is an admired and outstanding designer. While the significance of Arne Jacobsen's buildings was less appreciated, his furniture and other design work have become national and international heritage.
