Republic of Fritz Hansen™ contributed to the discovery and development of the pressure moulded veneer technique. Over the years, the technique has been refined to perfection and the improved quality of the pressure moulded veneer has consistently been transferred to the furniture. Today, Republic of Fritz Hansen are still leaders in the field and use pressure moulded veneer in the production of, among others, Arne Jacobsen’s stackable chairs such as Serie 7™ and Ant™ and the Arne Jacobsen’s table series.
Coloured Ash is a lacquered finish with a raw and powerful expression. The wood grain is clearly visible and gives the chair a varied and authentic look. Coloured Ash is very resistant to scratches.
