In 2015 Fritz Hansen will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic Series 7 chair designed Arne Jacobsen. The Danish manufacturer will mark the occasion with the launch of two special editions of the chair, inspired by the original colour palette designed by Jacobsen. The first jubilee model will have a dark blue lacquer shell and powder-coated burnished legs, while the second edition is dressed in pale pink lacquer with 24-ct gold-plated legs (yep, you read right: 24 carat gold).
“The 60th Anniversary Edition of the Series 7 is inspired by the notion that ‘opposites attract’, a key theme in interior design right now. The 60th Anniversary Edition of the Series 7 chair is all about contrast – in materials and colours. While the deep dark blue and the pale pink may contrast each other, they also interact to create a calm and elegant look, attracting and complementing one another.” – Read more here.
