The Drop chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 as part of his seminal masterpiece, the iconic Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The Drop was originally produced along with the Swan and the Egg chairs but in a very limited number, exclusively for the hotel. Whilst other designs for the hotel stayed in the Fritz Hansen catalogue the Drop Chair never actually entered production until recently. Just one room in the SAS Copenhagen has maintained Arne Jacobsen's original design 'Room 606', where the drop chair can still be seen in it's original form. Following improved manufacturing techniques and an X-ray of one of the very few original Drop Chairs remaining to examine the structural makeup, the Drop Chair has now been released into Fritz Hansen's permanent collection.
