Series 7 – monochrome from head to toe
The Series 7, which was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1955, is part of the admiral of the Fritz Hansen collection. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Serie 7 chair by Arne Jacobsen in 2015, the classic chair was given new colours by the artist Tal R. Matching the seat shell using the same colour, the frames are now available in black, white, Chavalier orange & Trieste blue.
Lacquered or painted
The seat of pressed veneer of the Series 7 is available in two variants as part of the monochromatic edition. One of them has a varnished seat out of ash wood and the another one is lacquered. The difference: the painted edition lets the typical and individual wooden grain of the seat be seen, which emphasises the natural appearance and silhouette of the Series 7. The lacquered models are special with their silky and uniform seat. In this case, the wooden grain is covered with an opaque colour-layer.
Both editions – the painted and the lacquered monochromatic models – are available in the classic non-colours black and white as well as in two tones of the range of colours offered by the artist Tal R: Chavalier Orange, an Orient influenced orange tone which is the most exclusive of the new colours according to Tal R, and in Trieste Blue, a mix of violet and blue.
Lacquered from head to toe
The monochromatic model convinces with its unitary tranquilizing appearance. The classic four legged base appears in the same colour as the seat. The two elements of the chair become a harmonic unity this way.
The Series 7 by Arne Jacobsen deserves its place amongst the classic chairs of furniture history, since the different modules, colours and bases offer many individual configurations, adapted to everyone. The chair is available in other colours and with different bases and cushions.
