The 3107 series 7 chair which more commonly known
This iconic piece of attractive yet functional furniture was designed back in 1955 by the Danish Architect and Designer Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen who produced it to world acclaim. Its popularity has continued to grow throughout the years since then appealing to people of all generations. The appeal of the series 7 designer chair arises from the simplicity of its design; it is made from a single piece of moulded plywood which is mounted on straight functional chrome legs. To date the chair has sold over 6 million copies for Fritz Hansen and millions more reproductions.
This chair first became iconic after the worldwide publication of Lewis Morley's provocative photo of Christine Keeler sitting across it naked.
From its original concept the range of finishes has now extended to include almost every colour imaginable. Moreover there is now a range of leather series 7 designer chairs available. Not only is this designer chair comfortable lightweight and easy to handle but it is also stackable providing an ideal answer where space is inadequate. As such it provides a perfect solution to people living in apartments and flats whilst still appealing to those circumstances where they can be left on display as statements in their own right.
Even though the series 7 chair was designed in 1955 it has a very contemporary feel about it. The design is also extremely versatile in its uses. Being multifunctional it is equally at home whether being used in cafes, conference rooms, restaurants, conservatories and for more formal dining. It has also been the choice in many instances for meeting rooms, waiting rooms and even board rooms. In recent years the range of these wonderful and adaptable designer chairs has even extended to include a selection of miniature children's chairs suitable for use in bedrooms, playrooms as well as for dining.
This versatile chair is not only ideal for a whole host of situations but also sits comfortably whatever the decor from traditional right through to the ultra modern- a testament to the original design and genius of Arne Jacobsen.
