Fritz Hansen Reveals New Color Palette For Iconic Arne Jacobsen Dining Chairs

, , , , , , , , By Catherine

Fritz Hansen has worked with legendary Italian curator and gallerist Carla Sozzani to carefully select 16 colors for iconic Arne Jacobsen dining chairs for ‘A Sense of Color’.

The new collection of these well-recognized plywood designs from the 1950s preserves the master’s legacy while contributing to keeping his memory alive, by mixing it with contemporary influences.

The new palette consists of deep red, blue, and green shades punctuated by yellow, orange, and pastels as well as neutral touches of clay and beige – All united by a subtle, warm tone and chosen to complement one another.

“From the dark green and blue of shifting waves and sky, to the pinks and ochres of small shells and a fading seashore in the twilight, the palette came naturally as I explored the essence of daylight and its partner: night, to capture the essence of our shared color harmonies,” Sozzani explains poetically. “Any interactions with light and the confrontation of light with darkness causes a deep emotion, and the magnet that draws these two together is color.”

These colors have been applied to Fritz Hansen’s Series 7, Ant and Grand Prix chairs. They are now available to buy in-store and online.
