1995 set of 4 Arne Jacobsens iconic Model 3100 “Ant” chair. The Ant chair’s visual expression is delicate and artful, much like the curves of a musical instrument. Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1952, the chair is made from nine layers of pressure moulded veneer. Its elegant shape disguises its remarkable strength and comfort. The three-legged Ant is inspired by the simple, agricultural stools created to stand firmly on uneven floors in Danish farmhouses. The chair beautifully exemplifies Jacobsen’s understanding of the inherent strength of raw materials, consisting of only two parts: the combined seat and backrest in form-pressed plywood and a tubular steel frame. The chairs where very carefully used and show very few signs of wear and have firm back rests.
