Heal’s welcomes the arrival of Danish design brand Fritz Hansen which has joined the retailer’s Tottenham Court Road store. Situated on the second floor, Fritz Hansen is the latest addition to Heal’s Designer Furniture Floor, offering a roster of beautifully sculpted, modernist designs.
Founded in 1872 by the cabinet maker of the same name, Fritz Hansen is arguably the most recognised of all Scandinavian manufacturers. The brand was first stocked at Heal’s in the 1950s, and like Heal’s, Fritz Hansen has a long tradition of producing cutting-edge designs which marry fine-quality materials and innovative techniques.
In its new home at Heal’s, Fritz Hansen showcases a series of collaborations with leading names from the world of architecture and design, including Danish design master Arne Jacobsen, Kasper Salto and Piero Lissoni. Previously featured in Heal’s ‘Can’t-Wait-To-Get-It-Home’ advertising campaign of the 1960s, Jacobsen’s Egg Chair for Fritz Hansen (£4,723) is as revolutionary today as when it was first launched five decades ago. In a deep blue textured canvas, the Egg Chair’s panelled upholstery perfectly moulds to its curvaceous form, making it a true statement piece.
Other Jacobsen’s designs to look out for at Heal’s include Grand Prix chair (from £448) and the best-selling Series 7 chair (from £329), now available in a selection of special anniversary finishes to celebrate over 60 years of its manufacture. The latest Fritz Hansen collection also features the Ro Easy Chair by Jaime Hayón, which takes inspiration from Jacobsen’s signature style with its swooping lines and cutaway silhouette.
In addition to furniture, the Fritz Hansen collection at Heal’s includes the brand’s entire Kaiser Idell lighting range designed by German silversmith and past foreman of the Bauhaus metal workshop, Christian Dell. ‘Idell’ is a reference to the word ‘idea’, while ‘Kaiser’ is a reference to the original manufacturer.
Available in table, wall, floor and pendant versions and various colourways, the Kaiser Idell series is based on a world-patented swivel joint with a distinctive dome shaped shade, embossed with the original logo.
