Description

The 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 a polypropylene or upholstered version.

The polypropylene version is available with a leg in either polished chrome or the same complementary colour as the shell. An optional seat cushion that comes in a complementary colour to the chair can also be selected.

The upholstered version of the Drop Chair is also available in a range of fabrics and leathers.

Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen was born in Copenhagen in 1902 and graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in architecture in 1927. He was prolific both as an architect and as a designer. He is most famous for designing the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, and for the interior, the Egg and Swan Chair together with the Swan Sofa and Series 3300 with Fritz Hansen. This propelled the Arne Jacobsen name into furniture history.
