The Drop chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 as part of his masterpiece, the legendary Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The Drop was originally produced along with the Swan and the Egg but in a very limited number exclusively for the hotel. After more than 50 years in hibernation, the Drop is now relaunched. It is a small chair with a big personality and it is as fresh and vibrant as a new design but with a rare heritage. The design of the back combines a warm embrace with freedom of movement, resulting in a surprising level of comfort.
The shell comes in plastic in six colours and with upholstery in fabric and leather. The shell is made of ABS plastic with nylon as reinforcement inside. The upholstered chair is upholstered with cold cured foam and covered with fabric or leather. The base consists of four legs in chromed or powder coated steel tubes. The powder coated legs is only available for the plastic chair in colours matching the shell. The chromed and powder coated base for the plastic chair is with leg ferrules of black synthetic material. On the upholstered chair the base has a chromed steel glide made in one piece with the legs - underneath felt glides are mounted.
The accessories for the chair includes a seat cushion for the plastic version.
Unupholstered Drop chairs are available in a white, black, sand yellow, fire red, storm blue and stone grey shell.

The Drop chair is also available in Fritz Hansen comfort, basic, classic, rustic, natural, elegance and sense leathers.
