Ant Chair, 4 Legs, Front Upholstered

3101 Ant Chair, 4 Legs, Front Upholstered by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen.

The Ant™ chair is a visually stunning piece, reminiscent of the elegant curves found in musical instruments. Originally designed by the renowned Arne Jacobsen in 1952, this chair is skillfully crafted from nine layers of pressure moulded veneer. Its graceful form cleverly conceals its exceptional durability and comfort.

Drawing inspiration from traditional Danish farmhouses, the Ant chair pays homage to the simplicity and stability of agricultural stools designed to adapt to uneven floors. Jacobsen's visionary understanding of the innate strength of raw materials is perfectly showcased in this chair, consisting of just two components: a form-pressed plywood seat and backrest combination, and a sturdy tubular steel frame.

To enhance the seating experience, choose from an extensive selection of fabrics and luxurious leather upholstery. The chair's shell is thoughtfully padded with polyurethane (PUR) foam, ensuring optimal comfort. Water-soluble glue is utilized for seamless bonding of the upholstery to the foam and the foam to the shell."

The veneer layers are glued together with water-based urea-formaldehyde glue. Un-upholstered chairs are coated with polyurethane lacquer, which prevents the emission of formaldehyde.
