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.
Chair designed by Arne Jacobsen, 1958, manufactured by Fritz Hansen.
The shell comes in plastic in six colours and with upholstery in fabric and
leather. The shell is made of ABS plastic with nylon as reinforcement inside.
The upholstered chair is upholstered with cold cured foam and covered with
fabric or leather.
The base consists of four legs in chromed or powder coated steel tubes.
The powder coated legs is only available for the plastic chair in colours
matching the shell. The chromed and powder coated base for the plastic
chair is with leg ferrules of black synthetic material. On the upholstered
chair the base has a chromed steel glide made in one piece with the legs
– underneath felt glides are mounted.
The accessories for the chair includes a seat cushion for the plastic version.
