The small version (Ø370) was designed to be suspended high up. The light is therefore diffused through an acrylic opal base plate to ensure 100% glare-free light. The slightly larger version (Ø500) was designed to be hung at low height. The original incandescent version of this size was therefore not fitted with a diffuser. The open rings at the top faintly illuminate the fixture.

“The program does not allow for it. I simply do not think that I have the talent for it...no, I am always grateful for the program, this is what evokes the solutions that I arrive at.” Arne Jacobsen
Arne Jacobsen's cooperation with Fritz Hansen dates back to 1934. However, it was the Ant designed in 1952 - succeeded by the 3107 series - that propelled his and Fritz Hansen's names into furniture history.
Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was very productive both as an architect and as a designer. At the end of the 50s Arne Jacobsen designed the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, and for that project the Egg, the Swan, the Swan sofa and Series 3300.
Arne Jacobsen was and is an admired and outstanding designer. While the significance of Arne Jacobsen's buildings was less appreciated, his furniture and other design work have become national and international heritage.
