About the design
The T-chair is designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1957, and put into production by Fritz Hansen.
The 3103 or T-chair is, like its predecessors the Ant chair and series 7 chair, a pressure molded teak veneer shell with a slim-line organic shape and contoured seat form, fitted on four legged tubular steel frame with black plastic finish.
Arne Jacobsen designed the T-chair in 1957 in collaboration with the Danish M.D. (Egill Snorrason), who had criticized the previous models for their lack of lumbar support – the result is a more upright seating position and better lumbar support, which in all gives an incredible seating comfort. The T-chair only remained in production at Fritz Hansen until the late 1960s, but was put back into production for a short period in the early 1980s.
The T-chair was available with a teak shell or upholstered and four-legged steel frame with black plastic finish. It was also available with a swivel frame with wheels (called Model 3212), and as a school chair in two smaller versions (seat heights of 36 and 42,5 cm). A children’s chair was also produced with a seat height of 34 cm (called Model 3123).
With its simple, understated and elegant shape, the T-chair, or the Hammer chair, which it is also referred as, is a timeless design piece – just as modern today as the day it was designed.
