Arne Jacobsen design by Fritz Hansen, 1952.
First designed for the Danish pharmaceutical company, Novo Nordisk, the Ant chair, with its avant-garde design, was not an instant hit.
It was only after it was displayed at the Danish Decorative Arts museum in the spring of 1952, that the chair was truly acknowledged as a worldwide icon of Scandinavian design.
Named Ant, after its characteristic organic form, with it perfectly shaped curves, narrowed back and delicate legs, it is the result of a combination between traditional Scandinavian quality and modern structure.
The back and seat are molded and pressed out of a single piece of plywood, and are complemented with stable steel legs.
The Ant chair not only offers a comfortable seat, but also a certain sturdiness which guarantees a very long life span. Its delicate and minimalist design seduces all generations.
The chair is extremely light and easy to stack (two by two)
