The anniversary edition due to the 60th birthday of the Series 7 is inspired by the old saying "Opposites attract". With the limited edition by Fritz Hansen everything is revolving around contrasts – both for materials and colours..
In 1955 Series 7 was designed by Arne Jacobsen. For manufacturing purposes, Jacobsen experimented with his new technique of converting coating bond scale boards. Rapidly, the elegant chair achieved worldwide success which even after 60 years did not loose a bit of its great appeal.
Design Icon as Special Edition
To celebrate this jubilee, Fritz Hansen presents the chair in contrasting colours. On the one hand dark blue and pink strongly contrast each other, on the other hand they also interact with each other and create a calm and elegant look which is both attractive and complementary.
The masculine look wins over with its dark blue seating shell and its matching dark frame. The feminine version delights with the soft pink shell and its frame in glossy golden tone.
For the 60th jubilee of the design icon, there is a golden disc at the bottom side of the seating shell of every exemplar. The exclusive design of the special edition warrants that the Anniversary Editions 2017 become a famous design classic in the future.
