Fritz Hansen | Official dealer - Salvioni Design Solutions

Salvioni is Fritz Hansen official dealer

Milestone of danish design, the brand Fritz Hansen gathers in its catalogue some of the biggest classics of the Scandinavian modernim with modern and cutting-edge furniture, signed by some of the most important contemporary designers. In the style of Fritz Hansen furniture, characteristically nordic, the functional approach is tempered by pure and light lines, which make up immediately recognisable silhouettes that have now become part of the collective immagination. Products such as the Egg Chair armchair and Serie 7’s chairs by Arne Jacobsen are now pillars of the history of design.

Fritz Hansen’s story began in 1872 with the activity of the homonymous cabinetmaker, who created furnishing for some of the most important buidings in Copenhagen. His sons and nephews carried on the company’s industrialization process, specializing in bentwood and steel tube productions, along the lines of the Thonet furniture. From the beginning of the 40s all the greatest masters of Scandinavian design will have the opportunity to work with the company

It was with Fritz Hansen that some of the masterpieces of danish design saw the light, like the Egg Chair and Swan armchairs and the Ant, Drop and Serie 7 chairs by Arne Jacobsen, or the China Chair by Hans J. Wegner. Among the most famous tables of the brand you can find the Super-Elliptical model by Piet Hein, Bruno Mathsson and Arne Jacobsen and the Grand Prix table, also by Arne Jacobsen, so called in honor of the victory of an important prize at the Trienale di Milano.

Towards the end of the 70s the Hansen family gave the company to the Skandinavisk Holding, which put financial resources necessary to consolidate its growth through some great acquisitions. First of all, the company added to its catalogue the rights for the production of furniture by the famous Poul Kjaerholm, like the PK22 armchair or the PK61 coffee table. In 2015 the Lightyears illumination company was acquired and it bought with it lamps such as the model KAISER idell by Christian Dell or the Concert sunspension lamp by Jørn Utzon.

Although it can boast in its catalogue timeless products of true legends such as Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjaerholm and Hans J. Wegner, Fritz Hansen is a company that looks to the future and so it decided to rely on some of the main stars of contemporary design like Jamie Hayon, author of th Lune Sofa, Piero Lissoni, Nendo, Jehs+Laub, Benjamin Hubert, Monica Förster and GamFratesi.
