In 1959 Arne Jacobsen created Gryden™ - in English meaning the Pot™ - a light take on an embracing lounge chair and originally designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. In 2018 Fritz Hansen relaunched Pot with the aim to revitalise another Arne Jacobsen signature classic for the modern interior. One that works as beautifully standing alone in a home lounge setting as it does arranged in pairs in a bar or informal meeting room. The shape is the same as the original design from 1959 - the seat and materials have been improved to meet today's standards for comfort and durability. The Pot comes in an endless variety of fabrics and leathers. It is small yet welcoming, it is modern yet timeless and it is an Arne Jacobsen original. Originally the Pot decorated both the SAS Royal Hotel's sophisticated Orchid bar and the astonishing winter garden. The chair too was found on every floor in the hotel across from the elevators, greeting guests with a recognisable meeting point. Needless to say, the Pot chair inhabited the hotel as much as its design icon siblings, the Egg™ and the Swan™.
