Beautiful and elegant. However, not immediately popular in 1952 when Fritz Hansen launched the Ant designed by Arne Jacobsen. The chair had only 3 legs and no arms! Nevertheless, revolutionary in 1952 due to shell design with back and seat made out of one piece of laminated wood with 9 layers of moulded veneer and 2 layers of cotton textile in-between. The 3 or 4 legs are chromed or satin chromed steel. The Ant™ – in more conservative terms referred to as model 3100 with three legs, or model 3101 with four legs that was added in 1980. The colour range is wide with all new colours as of March 1, 2005, - available in lacquer or lazur - or in maple or beech veneer - or dark-stained oak. The base is chromed or satin chromed steel.
