Founded in Denmark in 1872, Fritz Hansen is a global leader in furniture, lighting and accessory design and production. Driven by a passion for beauty, quality, and craftsmanship, the company embodies a modern, Nordic lifestyle and collaborates with visionary artists, designers, and architects from around the world. The brand has co-created with Arne Jacobsen, Cecilie Manz, Hans J. Wegner, Piero Lissoni, Jaime Hayon and Poul Kjærholm, among others. In 2022 Fritz Hansen acquired Skagerak, a design company founded in 1976 in Denmark, bringing two pioneering Danish design brands together as one company. Fritz Hansen stands behind Skagerak to bring the best of Danish design to every part of life, indoors and outdoors.
At this year's 3daysofdesign, Fritz Hansen explores the immutable relationship between art and design with a series of artistic installations of iconic pieces in the exhibition, EXPRESSIONS OF CHARACTER. The installations expose the base elements of design through shapes, colours, light and material character. Taking place across the indoor and outdoor areas of Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, home of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, the exhibition is set in the very rooms where the most influential Danish designers received their formative education.
