Special Offer: the Drop chair with black Basic leather at a special price!

Fritz Hansen wanted to offer a version of the upholstered Drop at a reduced price to democratize its use. To do this, Fritz Hansen opted for the black Basic leather version, which resistance allowed the use of staples instead of the usual seam. Working time saved allows a very significant reduction of the chair's price, as the black Basic leather Drop is now sold 888€ instead of the previous 1397€ (approximately 36,5% reduction).

Some Examples

1 – choose your upholstery

The Drop chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 as part of his masterpiece, the legendary Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The Drop was originally produced along with the Swan™ and the Egg™ but in a very limited number exclusively for the hotel. After more than 50 years in hibernation, the Drop is now relaunched. It is a small chair with a big personality and it is as fresh and vibrant as a new design but with a rare heritage. The design of the back combines a warm embrace with freedom of movement, resulting in a surprising level of comfort.
The shell is made of ABS plastic upholstered with cold cured foam and fabric or leather. The base consists of four legs in thin chromed tubes.
Seat height: 46 cm / 18.1” Total height: 88,5 cm / 34.6” Width: 45,5 cm / 17.7” Depth: 54,5 cm / 21.3”
Warranty: Fritz Hansen offer an extended warranty if the Drop chair is registered online at fritzhansen.com/my-republic within 3 months from the date of purchase.
