Also known as The Republic of Fritz Hansen, this legendary brand is synonymous with stylish Scandinavian design. One of Denmark’s oldest and most revered furniture producers, Fritz Hansen is the ultimate destination for those seeking iconic Danish home decorating collections. The company was founded in 1872 by cabinetmaker Fritz Hansen, and based in Copenhagen. By the turn of the century, Fritz’s son, Christian E. Hansen, began experimenting with steam bending beech, which eventually evolved into laminate wood. This development proved to be a turning point for the company, allowing its designer partners to bring their visionary, sculptural concepts to life, and to experiment with form and function. The results were nothing short of art, giving each piece a presence and personality that makes it the center of any room. Early connections with Danish luminaries like Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjaerholm led to triumphs like the Egg lounge chair, the Series 7 accent chair, and the PK22 lounge chair. By the 21st century, Fritz Hansen had become an international leader in innovative furniture design, guided by the philosophy that a single piece of furniture can heighten a space and the well-being of the people who inhabit it. Every piece produced, from coffee tables to sectional sofas, has become an instant classic. Above all else is a commitment to craftsmanship and artistic expression, which has kept the company as relevant as ever. In recent years, smart pieces designed with modern designers like Jamie Hayon and Piero Lissoni have cemented the company’s status as a pioneer and leader in the furnishings world.
