Design Icons Month - Drop Chair
Throughout March, Aram Store celebrates the enduring appeal of authentic design icons. Following the recent change in UK law which now protects designs for 70 years after the death of the designer (bringing it in line with the rest of Europe), Aram has partnered with nine of the world’s most prestigious furniture brands to bring you some fantastic promotions. Why not start your very own design icons collection with one of these exclusive offers, which we will be posting one by one over the next few days?
Fritz Hansen started his company in 1872 in Copenhagen, specialising in the manufacture of small furniture parts. Manufacturing processes developed over time with steam bending so refined that in the 1930s the company was among the world leaders in the field. This led to wood lamination for which Fritz Hansen is renowned, the Ant chair of 1952 being a runaway hit as were its successors, the Series 7 and Drop chairs. The designer, Arne Jacobsen, delivered numerous other successful products for the company, in particular the Egg and Swan chairs. Fritz Hansen continues to produce its classic designs while also introducing new pieces to its collection annually.
The Drop chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 as part of the legendary SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The Drop was originally produced along with the Swan and the Egg, but exclusively for the hotel and it was never put into standard production until a few years ago. Now available in a molded plastic version with chrome or colour-matched legs.
