Fritz Hansen opened the doors of his Copenhagen workshop in 1885. With the help of his son Christian, the company soon established its reputation for outstanding quality and forward-looking design. They went on to collaborate with some of the masters of the Danish modern era, from Kaare Klint to Arne Jacobsen to Verner Panton.

This two-seater settee is a wonderful example of the timelessness of Hansen’s work of this period. The proportions are perfect, the profile clean and elegant. Upholstered in an alpaca herringbone fabric, with leather trim.
