InformationThe Fritz Hansen Drop Chair was originally designed by Arne Jacobsen for the five star SAS House Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1956-60.
Whilst other designs for the hotel stayed in the Fritz Hansen catalogue the Drop Chair never actually entered commercial production so has been unavailable to purchase until now. Just one room in the SAS Copenhagen has maintained Arne Jacobsen's original design 'Room 606', where the drop chair can still be seen in it's original form in a beautiful turquoise fabric (see images above).
Now, following improved manufacturing techniques and an X-ray of one of the very few original Drop Chairs remaining to examine the structural makeup, the Drop Chair has now been released into Fritz Hansen's collection and is now available in either Polypropylene as well as this upholstered version. In a large range of fabrics and leathers, it comes with chromed legs.
