Pot was designed along with the Egg™ and the Swan™ for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1959. Today, the lounge chair is relaunched with the purpose of complementing contemporary interiors with its ‘50s signature sculpture by Arne Jacobsen.
With improved comfort, modern materials and available in new playful fabrics the Pot returns in better shape than ever. The low, comfortable lounge chair embraces everyone who sits in it without ever taking over the room. The Pot is modern yet timeless and it is an Arne Jacobsen original.
Originally the Pot decorated both the SAS Royal Hotel’s sophisticated Orchid bar and the astonishing winter garden. The chair too was found on every floor in the hotel across from the elevators, greeting guests with a recognisable meeting point. Needless to say, the Pot chair inhabited the hotel as much as its design icon siblings, the Egg™ and the Swan™.
The relaunched Pot chair is suitable for both private and contract use based on its renewed durability and timeless quality, both characteristics of the Fritz Hansen way of manufacturing and the Arne Jacobsen way of designing. Pot works as beautifully standing alone in a home lounge setting as it does arranged in pairs in a welcoming cocktail bar or the informal meeting room.
“The Pot is the forgotten chair, which deserves a relaunch. I see the chair as one of Jacobsen’s quieter and floating designs - almost like a leaf in the air. The chair is surprisingly comfortable and spacious and the slightly modified 2018 version of the Pot is a compliment to Arne Jacobsen’s more modest design style and a beautiful example of less is more.” Christian Andresen, head of design, Fritz Hansen.
Pot is available to order now from Cult showrooms in Australia and New Zealand.
