Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen, office chair model '3117', leatherette, chromed metal, aluminum, plastic, Denmark, designed in 1955, produced in 1967.

With its slender metal frame and black upholstery Arne Jacobsen created an airy and functional office chair that is minimal as well as powerful. The chair is light in its appearance; simplistic yet very strong in lines and proportions. The desk chair comes without armrests which makes it suitable for any height of table or desk.

Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971), originally trained as an architect is also well-known for his furniture. It was only later in his career that Jacobsen created the pieces that he is now most known for. One of Jacobsen's main aims was to reduce material input to achieve clean visual lines. Technical quality and ergonomics were, however, not affected by the reduction. What is interesting is that where he followed mainly cubist functionalism in his architecture, he nevertheless mainly preferred organic forms in the design of his furniture. What all his works have in common however is the application of the right proportions, both within a piece of furniture and in its relationship to the room.

Please note that we advise reupholstery before use. This can be done before shipping by our experienced craftsman in our own in-house restoration atelier. With high attention for the original, they make sure every piece retains its value and is ready for the many years to come. We kindly ask you to contact our design experts for further information about the endless possibilities our restoration and upholstery atelier has to offer. Of course, a locally organized reupholstery is possible as well.
