Fritz Hansen and Zaha Hadid Design collaborate to present ‘Shaping Reality Through Time’, a celebration of design evolution, shown through chairs produced since Fritz Hansen’s inception in 1872.
The exhibition includes a 2015 ZHD re-interpretation of Jacobsen’s iconic Series 7 chair and the overall edit reveals shared aesthetics of sculptural form and organic lines. Many of the Heritage pieces, including chairs from Arne Jacobsen and Verner Panton as well as latest designs launched in Milan, will be seen here for the first time ever in the UK. This beautiful exploration of timeless design includes sketches and photographs from archives and to support more recent work by designers such as Jaime Hayon and Nendo. ‘Shaping Reality Through Time’ promises a beautiful and intriguing retrospective look at Fritz Hansen to date.
'Shaping Reality Through Time' A Story of Design Evolution is open from May 21 - July 12 at the Zaha Hadid Gallery.
