Fritz Hansen Serie 7 Chair Tal R Edition | Opium Red
In 1955, Arne Jacobsen set a new standard for chair design when he created Series 7™ - a design fit for the future. For eternity, some would say. The most sold stackable chair in design history, it has become a style icon and is seen by many as one of the finest examples of timeless design. It has remained popular for six decades – a period of profound changes in technology, culture and lifestyle. In 2017, Series 7™ has reached its 60th anniversary and is still in perfect shape to continue its journey towards new generations with new demands and new standards for design.
To celebrate the chair that has sold more than seven million copies so far, Fritz Hansen asked the Danish artist Tal R to pick new colours for the Series 7™ chair. Tal R is internationally celebrated for his profound sense of colour, which is also clearly evident in the beautiful colours he has chosen for the new editions of the Series 7™ chair. The new colours revitalize the design and let us see the iconic chair in a new light.
Fritz Hansen’s approach to colours is associated with our choice of genuine materials that patinate over time in a constant state of gradual transformation. Fritz Hansen appreciates this slow metamorphosis, which is also reflected in the new colours by the Danish artist Tal R. He has created artistic colours, all blends and all variable colours that change with the light, the space, the seasons and other aspects of the environment. Because a colour is not just a colour but a complex and inconstant factor. That is why Fritz Hansen prefers artistic colours to industrial colours, diversity to uniformity and the natural to the artificial. The result is a piece of furniture that will continue to live, surprise and inspire.
