Prominent Danish furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen has been the official producer and reseller of Arne Jacobsen’s iconic dining chairs since the 1950s. Now, the chairs are being released in 16 new colors in collaboration with Italian editor, design curator, and gallerist Carla Sozzani. The collection is suitably called ”A Sense of Colour”.
The 16 new colors and 7 base options are added to the 7, Ant, and Grand Prix series, the first three chairs where the new colors will be applied. Made-to-order and customized solutions are also available for special projects, providing endless possibilities.
— From the dark green and blue of shifting waves and sky, to the pinks and ochres of small shells and a fading seashore in twilight, the palette came naturally as I explored the essence of daylight and its partner: night, to capture the essence of our shared color harmonies, explains Sozzani.
