This inspired that….

Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1955, chair “3107” is one of the most popular chairs in Danish design history and is now commonly refereed to as the Series 7 Chair. At the time of its inception, it used a new technique in which plywood could be bent in two dimensions. Over 5 million units have been produced exclusively by Fritz Hansen since its creation. It is the most copied chair in the world!

This chair is so ubiquitous and iconic that you can even by the mini version for your bookshelves or other display cases. At $125, the 3 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4′ miniaturized version will set you back more than most of the full sized reproductions. You can find the miniature at Nova68.
