Ant chair


design Arne Jacobsen, 1952

Initially, Arne Jacobsen designed the Ant™ for the canteen at Novo Nordisk, an international Danish healthcare company. The inspiration for the Ant came from Hvidt & Mølggard’s AX-series. Today, the Ant is one of the most prominent icons in the collection. "In my opinion, he Ant is the most influential example of furniture design in the 20th century" says Kjeld Vindum, who add "It is an immensely important chair because it takes into account the new way of life and the new possibilities, and at the same time it has an elegant and up-to-date expression. It is Arne Jacobsen's masterpiece.


Despite its minimalist form and svelte shape, the Ant is an extremely comfortable chair. The shell is in pressure molded veneer. The inner veneer is always beech and the outer veneer is available in 9 different veneers: Maple, Beech, Ash, Elm, Oak, Oregon Pine, Cherry, Walnut or Dark-stained Oak. It is also available with colored ash or lacquered ash in 12 different colors: White, Altstadt rose, Nine grey, Black, Opium red, Chevalier orange, Egyptian yellow, Trieste blue, Hüzün green, Ai blue, Evren purple and Chocolate milk brown.
