Republic of Fritz Hansen

The Danish furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen is launched by its eponymous founder in 1872. The visionary master carpenter Hansen pursues his ambition to produce furniture of the highest quality with for that time typical and yet timeless design. Until 1885 Fritz Hansen made a name for himself with his furniture range, then he hands the company over to his son Christian at the turn of the century. He manages to expand the company's success further with prestigious contracts: Fritz Hansen furnishes whole buildings in Copenhagen, including the Christiansborg Palace, the Supreme Court and Town Hall.

In the 20th century an international orientation follows and the transition to industrial furniture manufacturing. As a result the first Danish steel furniture gain recognition in New York - and not in the home market.

The collaboration with the legendary designer Arne Jacobsen starts in 1934. In the fifties he recognizes the immense potential of the new gluing techniques perfected by the founder´s grandson Soren Hansen. The beginning is "The Ant", the still up to now best-selling chair in the history of Fritz Hansen. Other famous designers such as Poul Kjærholm, Verner Panton and Hennig Larsen shaped the history of the manufacturer. The company follows consistently its ambitious goal of producing design classics up to today.

Fritz Hansen - the designers

With the establishment of the Republic of Fritz Hansen, the company pays tribute to its international orientation. The design philosophy of the Republic is simple, original, sculptural, timeless and still of temporal relevance. This philosophy continues to be carried out to this day by young Danish designers and international names such as Morten Voss or Kasper Salto.

  • Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971)
  • Arne Jacobsen is known internationally as one of the most important Danish designers and architects of the 20th century. He has dedicated himself to functionalism. A work of art by Jacobsen is the Copenhagen SAS Royal Hotel, for which he creates not only the architectural concept, but also the interior design to the smallest detail. With the "Egg", the "Swan", the "Ant" and the entire series 7 he created milestones of Danish furniture design.

  • Poul Kjærholm (1929-1980)
  • The trained carpenter Poul Kjærholm is deeply fascinated by one material: steel is a natural substance for him, which has the same artistic fineness as other natural materials. For Fritz Hansen he creates remarkable chair prototypes. Since 1982, Fritz Hansen manufactures and sells the entire Kjærholm collection created between 1951 to 1967.

  • Bruno Mathsson (1907-1988) 
  • The Swedish architect and designer Bruno Mathsson quickly gains international recognition with his designs. He prefers simple kept, elegant forms of beauty. He transfers this principle onto furniture design. Artistic and technically innovative furniture are created that are now considered classics of our time. In 1968, together with Piet Hein, he designed the super-elliptical table.

The products by Fritz Hansen

Many of the legendary designs by Arne Jacobsen are still true bestseller: the chair "Ant" for example allows, despite its delicate and minimalistic shape, very comfortable sitting. "The Ant" was originally designed for the canteen of a Danish company. By the way this absolute design classic laid the foundation for the popular chair Collection Series 7, until now one of the top sellers of the Fritz Hansen range.

For the renowned Copenhagen Hotels SAS Royal Hotel-Lounge Jacobsen designed the Egg Chair. "The Egg" is a chair that offers great shielded seating comfort. Also stunning is the moulded chair "The Swan" - its swing is actually reminiscent of a furious swan with outstretched wings. Similar characteristic shapes can also be perceived with his Swan sofa.
