Arne Jacobsen’s iconic 1958 Drop Chair to be reintroduced by Danish furniture brand Republic of Fritz Hansen
April 16, 2014
Danish furniture brand Republic of Fritz Hansen will revive the 1958 Drop chair designed by Modernist architect Arne Jacobsen in Milan next week.
The Drop chair was originally produced alongside the archetypal Swan and Egg chairs for the interior of the Radisson Scandinavian Airlines System Hotel in Copenhagen, designed by Danish designer and architect Arne Jacobsen in the 1950s.
The tear-shaped chairs were produced exclusively in a limited edition for the hotel’s bar and lobby. This version of the Drop chair has been updated using new production methods and materials.
The chair comes in plastic in black, white, blue, grey, red and yellow. The plastic versions are available with either chrome or powder-coated legs in matching colours. The seat is available with textile or leather upholstery.
The chair will be exhibited at the Republic of Fritz Hansen’s showroom at Corso Giuseppe Garibaldi 77 in Milan from Tuesday next week.
