Fritz Hansen’s Dot stool is a Danish design classic created by Arne Jacobsen in 1954, as he was in the process of designing the now legendary Ant chair for the company. Originally a three-legged stool, also known as model 3170, Dot was revitalized in 1970 and updated to a four-legged version.
The multifunctional Dot stool can be used in the kitchen, hallway, home office, you name it. Due to its lightweight, stackable structure, the stool is easy to grab anytime an extra seat is needed. The seat of the Dot stool is made of premium leather – it actually uses leftover leather from other Fritz Hansen chair classics.
“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.
