Description from Fritz Hansen
The Ant comes in ten different veneers: maple, beech, ash, cherry, oregon pine, elm, oak, walnut, dark stained oak or full dark stained oak with clear lacquer as well as two finishes: coloured ash or lacquer in all colours. All chairs are made of pressure moulded sliced veneer. The base comes with 3 or 4 legs (stackable in two heights) and is made of chromed steel tubes.
The cooperation between Arne Jacobsen and Fritz Hansen dates back to 1934. But in was in 1952 the break-through came with the Ant. 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.
