Arne Jacobsen’s beautiful chair, model ”3208” - was originally designed for the Danish central bank. In 2007 it was relaunched in the Fritz Hansen collection and in 2008 we're introducing a new variety with castors.
The Lily was originally designed and presented on the Danish furniture fair in 1970 and by many concidered the most beautiful armchair by Arne Jacobsen. Jacobsen used the 3208 in his furnishing of the Danish central bank, and the chair was in production until the end of the 70s. The production process was - and is - very difficult; the curves of the shell required substantial pressure which resulted in about ¾ of the finished shells being rejected, and it was consequently discontinued. Through the years, however, the production methods have been improved;therefore, Fritz Hansen has been able to introduce the new model of the 3208 or with the more poetic name, the Lily. Today it's an exclusive, upgraded version of Arne Jacobsen’s design. The chair - consisting of 10 layers of veneer - is available as an armchair in black, red or white lacquer or with black Soft leather with or without castors
