Designed by Arne Jacobsen
Arne Jacobsen initially designed the Ant™ for the canteen at Novo Nordisk, the international Danish healthcare company. Today, the Ant is one of the most prominent icons of the Fritz Hansen collection. The visionary design was met with an initial dose of scepticism, but production continued after Arne Jacobsen guaranteed to purchase every unsold chair himself. The minimalist, slender form, however, has since more than proven its worth, selling in the millions and earning classic status. The stackable wooden chair features a three- or four-legged chrome base, and is available in two heights and several colours and finishes.
