Its slender shape disguises its strength. Its modern look belies its age. Arne Jacobsen designed Ant™ in 1952 as a threelegged chair in the shape of a little ant with its head raised. The unusual design guaranteed the chair’s stability on uneven floors and cemented its distinct identity. Not everyone understood Ant™ at the time.
It was so different, so avant-garde. It was rebellious and revolutionary. Today Fritz Hansen produces the design in 3-legged and 4-legged versions, for the purist and more conventional tastes. In both variants, Ant™ remains young and fresh half a century after its creation, growing more relevant as decades pass and design trends ‘caught up’ to it.
This year Fritz Hansen unveils Ant™ in new colours with lower pricing, a move the company hopes will allow new customers and Arne Jacobsen fans to incorporate Ant™ into their home and work projects.
‘This is a really beautiful chair. The fresh new colours feel completely appropriate for this next chapter of the design’s story,’ says Fritz Hansen’s Head of Design Christian Andresen.
Ant™ has versatility and distinction that compliments any design style, remaining simple and luxurious, richly historied and forever young.
