Produced by Fritz Hansen, rosewood and steel pipe. Not immediately popular in 1952 when Fritz Hansen launched this chair designed by Arne Jacobsen. The chair had only 3 legs and no arms! The original model had 3 plastic legs and a seat made from form-moulded laminated veneer. The chair has since proved very popular although the plastic in the legs was replaced by tubular steel, and a version with 4 legs was added in 1980.
