Ann Chair

Plywood Veneer

Inspired by Arne Jacobsen, "Ant Chair" 

Interesting Facts:

  • The chair was designed in 1952 by Arne Jacobsen for use in the canteen of the Danish pharmaceutical firm Novo Nordisk. The Ant ("Myren" in Danish) was named for its approximate similarity to the outline of an ant with its head raised.
  • The chair was designed to be light, stable, easy to stack up and to minimize tangling the user's feet. The original model had three plastic legs and a seat made from form-moulded laminated veneer; Novo ordered just 300 of them. The chair has since proved very popular although the plastic in the legs was replaced by tubular steel.
Dimensions: 48.5w x 50.5d x 77h cm
