In the showroom, a place of pilgrimage for design and architecture students, you can see the pieces that have become icons: the Series 7 chair, the Swan chair or the Lissoni sofa.

Thus always re-fertilized and oriented to the core idea of Fritz Hansen - creativity, finest craftsmanship and absolute care in every detail - has been able to penetrate virtually into the collective consciousness of people with high-quality pieces of furniture and real to the office of the President of the UN General Assembly, the Crown Plaza Hotel in Bangkok, the ballroom of Oxford's venerable St. Catherine's College, in New York's MoMA and in private households all around the world.
