Fritz Hansen Pot Lounge Chair, leather, chromed steel base
We are pleased to reintroduce the Pot™ lounge chair designed by Arne Jacobsen.
The chair was created along with the Egg™ and the Swan™ for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1959. The improved comfort, modern materials and available in new playful fabrics the Pot returns in better shape than ever. The low, comfortable lounge chair embraces everyone who sits in it without ever taking over the room. The Pot is modern yet timeless and it is an Arne Jacobsen original. It is a social and embracing chair that works just as beautifully standing alone in a home lounge setting. Today, the lounge chair is relaunched with the purpose of complementing contemporary interiors with yet another 50s design from Arne Jacobsen.
With the relaunch of the Pot we aim to revitalise another Arne Jacobsen signature sculpture for the modern interior. One that works as beautifully standing alone in a home lounge setting as it does arranged in pairs in a welcoming cocktail bar or the informal meeting room. The shape is the same as the original design from 1959 - the seat and materials has been improved to meet today’s standards for comfort and durability. It is small yet embracive,it is modern yet timeless and it is an Arne Jacobsen original.
The Pot comes in an endless variety of fabrics - including 3 new and exclusive Fritz Hansen Colours - as well as leathers. The base comes in chrome or in dark brown powder coated steel.

Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was trained as a bricklayer and graduated from The Technical Society's school in 1924 and Copenhagen Art Academy 1927. In 1928 he received the Academy's gold medal, but prior to this, when only 23, he was awarded a silver medal at the 1925 Paris World Exhibition - the first of numerous honours that became a natural accompaniment to his artistic activities, his untiring search and his brilliant conceptions, made manifest by many successes in competitions at home and abroad. His main works include: town halls in ?rhus, Søllerød, Rødovre and Glostrup, SAS-building (Royal Hotel) in Copenhagen, Munkegårds School in Gentofte, Toms Chocolate Factory in Ballerup, The Danish National Bank headquarters, a sports hall in Landskrona, St. Catherine's College, Oxford and Hamburgerische Elektrizitätswerke's administration building. In 1932, Arne Jacobsen began collaboration with Fritz Hansens Eft. A/S, and over a period of years designed a series of chairs which are now recognised as milestones in the development of modern furniture. They include "The Ant" (1951), "The Egg" (1957), and "The Swann"(1957). But he was also an innovator in other design fields, such as the tableware series "Cylinda-line" in stainless steel. Arne Jacobsen was a professor at the Art Academy, and received honorary doctorates from a number of foreign universities and academies. Cylinda-line was awarded the ID-prize 1967 by The Danish Society of Industrial Design and The International Design Award 1968 by The American Institute of Interior Designers.
