The classic Ant chair was originally designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1952 for the canteen at Novo Nordisk, a Danish healthcare company. The name of this design stems from the outline of the Ant chair, which resembles an ant with its head raised.
Arne Jacobsen designed the Ant chair to be light, stable and stackable. Originally the Ant chair had three plastic legs and a seat made from laminated veneer. It is now available with steel legs, and in both a three-legged and four-legged version.
The seat shell comes in natural veneer (10 clear lacquered wood types), coloured ash (white or black with wood grain visible) or fully lacquered (white or black where wood grain is not visible). Base in chromed steel. Stackable.
