Arne Jacobsen, 3100, Myren, 1952

Myren var den første industrielt masseproducerede træstol med sæde og ryg i ét stykke. Den var tegnet til Novos kantine og blev hurtigt et ikon. Jacobsen insisterede på at fremstille stolen med tre ben, dels af æstetiske årsager, og fordi han mente, at en trebenet stol altid står stabilt på et ujævnt underlag. Dog blev den firbenede udgave den mest populære.

 

 

Arne Jacobsen, 3100, The Ant, 1952

The Ant was the first industrially mass-produced wooden chair with a seat and back in one piece. It was designed for the Danish pharmaceutical company Novo’s canteen and quickly became an icon. Jacobsen insisted on producing the chair with three legs, partly for aesthetic reasons and partly because he believed that a three-legged chair is more stable on an uneven surface. Nevertheless, the four-legged version was the most popular.
