About the Product
Initially, Arne Jacobsen designed the Ant™ for the canteen at Novo Nordisk, an international Danish healthcare company. Today, the Ant is one of the most prominent icons in the collection. To start with, however, the Ant was close to ending up as yet another prototype, because Fritz Hansen was not convinced of the chair’s potential. The chair survived the initial scepticism after Arne Jacobsen himself guaranteed to purchase any chairs that were manufactured should nobody else buy them. Despite its minimalist form and svelte shape, the Ant is an extremely comfortable chair.
