FRITZ HANSEN x DESIGN HOTELS
CELEBRATE DESIGN ICONS
With Fritz Hansen's 60th Anniversary Collection in partnership with Design Hotels
You may not be old enough to remember the birth of Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Egg™, Swan™, and Drop™ chairs in 1958, but rest assured you’ve seen them, sat in them, and loved them over the past 60 years.
Sixty years ago, some of the design world’s most iconic chairs—Arne Jacobsen’s the Egg™, the Swan™ and the Drop™—made their debut thanks to the legendary international design brand Fritz Hansen. This March, the chairs will be displayed at three events featuring collaborative installations by local design influencers at Trunk Hotel, Tokyo; The Sukhothai, Bangkok; and The Warehouse Hotel, Singapore.
The collaborative installation in Bangkok is designed by Vasu Virajsilp of Vaslab Architecture, one of Thailand’s most innovative architect under the concept of In The Stream of History to debut the 60th ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION, which comes in PURE natural leather and The classic hand-brushed aluminum base has been plated with 23K gold.
The installation curvilinear platform inspired by the flow of the river, was designed to be subtle yet elegant to raise the Arne Jacobsen's classic chairs. The Chedi pyramid element is also used for structural legs that perfectly blends with The Sukhothai classical designs.
The installation will be display from March 22-28, 2018 at The Sukhothai Lobby.
