Swan chair by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen
Pair of authentic swan chairs by Arne Jacobsen for Republic of Fritz Hansen. Both in immaculate / same condition.
Designed / launched by whom/when: The Swan chair was designed in 1958 by Danish Architect Arne Jacobsen (1902-71), for the Radisson SAS Airline Hotel in Copenhagen. It was then, and still is, made exclusively by Copenhagen’s Republic of Fritz Hansen.
Inspiration: The graceful curves of the swan’s rounded form were the result of experimentation with cold form polyurethane.
Fabrication: Polyurethane foam core, fibreglass reinforcement, 4 way Star shaped, zinc welded, satin polished aluminium swivel base with rubber glides, satin-chromed tubular steel central support. Kvadrat Fabric – Tundra 2 Col-447
DC Collectors: One owner verified. 8 years old. Minimal use, both look as new. Purchase Invoice provided including Kvadrat fabric details.
Design Consigned Stylist: This pair of Swans, ‘dressed’ in their fashionable quince upholstery, would undoubtedly be the Design stars in any living space. Sophisticated colour accent. We suggest the Alwa table as the go between. View HERE
DC Insider: Warning, there are counterfeit swan copies being produced by unlicensed ‘design thieves’ after a quick but ‘shady’ profit. Don’t get caught out with a fake.
*For sale and priced as a pair.
