‘Series 7’ chair in 7 new colours!

This September, Fritz Hansen launches the classic and versatile Arne Jacobsen’s ‘Series 7’  chair in seven new colours, including the hot pink one (above) by Arik Levy. This extremely comfortable chair was made famous when Christine Keeler, the woman at the centre of the Profumo Scandal was shot in 1963, sitting nude astride a cheaper version of the now iconic chair. The fake can now be seen in the V&A collection and can be viewed online at the V&A website.
