Talking about Fritz Hansen is not talking about any design company. His journey began in 1872 in Denmark and since then they have not ceased to amaze us with proposals of which Fritz Hansen himself, the carpenter who ceased the company, would be very proud.
Since then they have worked with masters such as Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjærholm, Cecilie Manz or Kasper Salto. That is why it is not surprising that from time to time we are surprised with products such as the chair that I bring to you today, that although it looks like a normal chair, it is not.
