Carimate armchair, 1959/2020

Carimate armchair by Vico Magistretti for Fritz Hansen.

The new anniversary edition Carimate armchair from Fritz Hansen is truly a special chair. The chair was first designed in red lacquer finish by the Italian design icon Vico Magistretti for the Carimate gold club in 1959. The new edition honours the designer and is available in red or black lacquer finish inspired by the original version.

Inspired by the original straw seat, the new seat design is elevated with a linen flag line mirroring the texture and aesthetic while avoiding the risk of organic decay associated with natural straw. The flag line is made from 110m European GMO-free flax and is handwoven to produce a gorgeous, organic seat. 

Small changes are made to the seat height and backrest design for greater comfort. Every chair is individually numbered for authenticity and longevity. Each chair features a brass plaque under each seat carrying its unique number.

The history of Fritz Hansen begins in 1872, where Danish cabinet-maker Fritz Hansen from Nakskov obtains a trade license in Copenhagen.

The history of Fritz Hansen begins in 1872, where Danish cabinet-maker Fritz Hansen from Nakskov obtains a trade license in Copenhagen.

In 1885 he starts a furniture production company of his own and within two years manages to establish a flourishing workshop - in central Copenhagen – where quality is already a priority.. Early on in the century, the forward-looking Christian E. Hansen, son of Fritz Hansen, starts to experiment with steam bending beech. In the Thirties, the technique is so refined that Fritz Hansen is among the world leaders in the field, which later evolves into the firm’s specialty: Furniture created in laminate wood.
