Classic Collection

Founded in Denmark in 1872, the company has a long history of collaborating with leading international designers to bring their visionary concepts to life – and to the spaces they help transform.

Fritz Hansen’s highly distinguished Classic Collection comprises a number of the most iconic pieces of furniture from renowned Danish architects and designers, including Arne Jacobsen’s Egg™, Swan™ and Series 7™ chairs and Poul Kjærholm’s PK22™ chair and PK80™ daybed.

The Contemporary Collection features new furniture and accessory designs from some of today’s most inspiring, internationally recognized modern designers, including Jaime Hayon, Piero Lissoni, Kasper Salto and Cecilie Manz. 

Common to the two collections is a sculptural artistic expression that blurs the lines between design and art and unites function and form in unprecedented ways, giving each work significant presence and purpose.

Today, as in 1872, Fritz Hansen’s work is guided by the philosophy that a single piece of furniture can beautify an entire room or building – and heighten the well-being of the people who inhabit these spaces. With an international presence and an ever-expanding collection of iconic designs, Fritz Hansen continues its journey of creating elegant, human interior design essentials that never compromise on comfort, and to strengthen its place in the global design, luxury, and lifestyle elite.

Fighting copies

How can I tell the difference between a genuine Fritz Hansen design and a counterfeit?

In spite of our imitators’ efforts, copies are easy to spot. Poor execution and inferior quality down to the tiniest detail give them away. The creative and financial investment that goes into a genuine Fritz Hansen means that our products have no equal in terms of quality, durability and design.
