Fritz Hansen 3320 Swan Chair Anniversary Edition Pure Leather 23K Gold Base
Manufacturer: Fritz Hansen
Designer: Arne Jacobsen
In 1958 Arne Jacobsen designed the Swan along with the Egg for the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. This organically shaped chair has since become synonymous with Danish furniture design throughout the world. The Swan™ chair combines a deep seat with high armrests that wrap in everyone who takes a seat in it. In 1958 the Swan was a technologically innovative chair: no straight lines - only curves. It represents a transition between materials; the deep dish of the shell had its origins in Jacobsen's attempt to produce a one-piece armchair of laminated wood.
This 60th anniversary salutes the silhouette of the Egg™, the Swan™ and the Drop™ chairs as well as the design hotel - the SAS Royal Hotel - they were originally created for. Today, they represent the essence of Arne Jacobsen and his time of glory within Danish design. A time we want to celebrate through a selection of exclusive materials, a pure and natural colour palette and a constant respect for Arne Jacobsen's original ways of working.
The serenity of nature was the starting point for the design process of the 60th anniversary. The idea was to unite the renowned heritage with a design that was relevant in time. The result is a design appealing to all senses with a mission to turn pure materials into personal design objects. The materials vary from the soft and serene PURE leather, the rich and smooth SERA wool fabric, to a 23 karat gold coated base, all of which will create patina and an expression of their own with time.
