100th anniversary edition

Fritz Hansen releases a numbered edition of the Carimate chair to honour the designer Vico Magistretti 100 years after his birth

Bold personality and detailed construction make Fritz Hansen’s anniversary edition Carimate truly special.

On October 6, Fritz Hansen relaunches an anniversary edition of the iconic Carimate chair in celebration of the designer Vico Magistretti's birthday. The relaunch of the chair honours Vico Magistretti (1920-2006) who designed the original red Carimate in 1959 for the golf club Carimate in Italy. The details make this anniversary edition by Fritz Hansen truly special.

‘The Carimate is a special chair with a lot of presence and personality. Vico Magistretti made a modern classic with this design. It’ strong alone or around a dining table,’ says Christian Andresen, Fritz Hansen’s head of design.

Every chair is individually numbered for authenticity and longevity. A brass plaque under each seat marks its unique number.

The flag line seat is inspired by the original straw seat, honouring the original aesthetic, without risking the organic decay associated with natural straw. Fritz Hansen has used European, GMOfree flax for the flag line - 110 meters are woven by hand to create the beautiful, organic seat. 

Small changes to the seat height and backrest design have been made for comfort. And the chair is available in red and black lacquer to honour earlier versions of the design.

All in all, this is a homage to Magistretti and a decorative ‘must-have’ for collectors and fans of Magistretti design.
