Ant Chair - Replica

Yet another masterpiece of form and function, the Ant Chair is an interesting, minimalist design which lacks nothing in comfort. Developed in 1951, this state of the art piece of furniture has been established as one of the most popular chairs in the late 20th and early 21st century. The flowing curves create a light symmetrical outline with strong presence. The Ant Chair is compact and ergonomic and offers comfort and stability. Arne Jacobsen’ s celebrated piece adds an instant character to the space and its recognised design is featured in international design museums as well as in a number of television productions, most notably on Britain’s BBC.

We produce the Ant Chair in high quality, nine-layer, textured plywood, moulded under steam pressure. The legs are chromed steel. The chair is available in eight colours and is stackable.

About the Designer

Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen

A career encapsulated by flirting between controversy and art nouveaux genius, Arne Jacobsen established global infamy by combining modernist ideals with a Nordic love of naturalism. Born in Copenhagen in 1902, Jacobsen secured an education at the Royal Academy of Arts in his homeland, drawing all future inspiration from the study of leading architects and designers of that era.

Despite elements of opposition towards avant-garde principals and idiosyncrasies within his architecture, Jacobsen is most decorated for his work within interior, furniture, textile and porcelain design - praised for a clear styling and the successful combination of form and function. There can be no greater compliment paid than the sheer fact that some of the Dane’s work received classic status during his lifetime, reaching cinematic acclaim with the use of his pieces in Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Arne Jacobsen’s use of propelled curves in a minimalist fashion earned his furniture countless awards, including the 1968 International Design Award from the American Institute of Interior Designers, the 1967 ID-prize from the Danish Society of Industrial Design and the 1957 Milan XI Triennale in Italy.
