16 New Colors Released for Arne Jacobsen’s Stacking Chairs
Danish design brand Fritz Hansen, in collaboration with visionary editor, design curator and gallerist Carla Sozzani, have just introduced 16 new colors and seven base options for the Series 7™, Ant™ and Grand Prix™ Arne Jacobsen stacking chairs. These are the first three designs that the new color series – A Sense of Colour – will be used on, making their silhouettes even more eye-catching and their personalities more vibrant. From bold yellow to the deepest green, it’s time to pick out your new favorite piece of furniture!
