The Ant Chair: Choose a Modern Look for a Evergreen

If you are thinking about a chair that characterized the design  production of the last century, the ant chair created by Arne Jacobsen is the item you are looking for. This chair is one of the most famous creation of the designer, an object with a unique style and with a look that can be recognize among any other. The ant chair reproduce the appearance of an ant, with the head raised up. The look of this chair is minimalist, but at the same time elegant ad fluid.
At the time of the launch of the ant chair, the audience haven’t receive this furniture in a good way: the first model of this chair (that was created for the cafeteria of novo nordisk, a pharmaceutical company) was rejected by the producer Fritz Hanses, because he was not sure of the success of the ant chair. Time has tell that he was wrong.
But Jacobsen insisted in the project of his chair: at least the ant chair was produced and this chair represented one of the most important trade success of century, being beloved by the public. And with the ant chair Arne Jacobsen won the Bets Prize at the “XI Triennale of Milano” in 1957, a very important prize for a designer: not so bad, for a chair that at the beginning was not consider a good product.
But why the ant chair have a so great success, that is going on for almost sixsty years (this chair is one of the most sell also in this latest year, an evergreen in the furniture of design) ? The reasons of this success its in the minimalist design, plain and simple, but at the same time very original: before Arne Jacobsen nobody thinks about a chair modern but with a comfortable séance. And the ant chair is easy to use, stackable (in this way the chairs take a little space) and very stable, despite the chair have only three legs (instead of the four that normally a chair has).
Over the years the materials used for the ant chair were changed: at first the chair was produced by Arne Jacobsen in plastic, after some year was produced in steel and in 1980 the design of the ant chair changed, with the addition of a fourth leg, instead of the three of the original model. By now you can find the ant chair in the two models (plastic and steel) and in the original style with three legs or four if you prefer a much classic chair.
Now you can find the ant chair in a great variety of colours, so you can easy choose what color you like the most and what of the variety is the best for the other furniture. And if you prefer a natural material like the wood, the ant chair is product in various types of wood, like ash, maple, beech and oak. A very big choice, for a model of chair that is having a great success all over the year, because of its unique style and design.
If you want to buy an ant chair for your home or your office, you must know that you are not buying only a simple chair, but you are buying a piece of history in furniture and design: the ant chair is over sixty, but if you choose this chair you choose a item that will never go out of fashion. The success of the creation of Arne Jacobsen, with the original e simple lines, is endless: a chair created in 1957, but with a modern spirit, so it can be suitable for everyone, from last century to present.
Look for the various models of ant chair, and choose what you like the most: you will certainly find the color and the material that you like, and, with an ant chair in your home or office, you will give a touch of elegance at the room with its unique silhouette, with a chair that is not only cool, but always comfortable and easy to use, in the merger of form and function.
