The chair was created originally 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.
The Pot chair will be available in stores worldwide from May 2018.
