Fredericia was established in 1911 as Fredericia Stolefabrik (Fredericia Chair Factory), by entrepreneur N. P. Ravnsø, who successfully led the venture until his death in 1936. With designs that are both authentic and purposeful, the brand is rooted in Danish heritage and relevant to a global audience. The Fredericia range has the ability to grow, evolve and surprise, whilst maintaining the essence and the spirit of the designers it represents.
Today, Fredericia undertakes collaborations with a carefully curated circle of international designers, all renowned for their exceptional level of design integrity and ambition to create designs that are beautifully crafted and aesthetically intriguing. Fredericia’s catalogue includes the creations of Borge Mogensen, Hans Wegner and Nanna Ditzel.
The new arrivals from Fredericia at Great Dane features an array of innovative designs, including sofas, chairs and coffee tables. As with other Fredericia creations, each product brings together considered form with timeless design.
Highlights from the new collection include:
Risom 65 Sofa: Originally designed in 1965 by Jens Risom, a pioneer of the Danish Modernism movement, the 65 sofa exemplifies a practical approach to design, whilst exuding exclusivity through bold architectural lines and a recessed base that gives the sofa a floating appearance. Loose seat and back cushions add luxurious comfort, which fit neatly and discreetly to create a singular entity that is simple yet striking. Given its sleek, clean lines and plush, luxurious seating experience, the Risom 65 Sofa can easily be envisioned in any modern-day space. The sofa is available in fabric and leather options with a metal frame. A-Chair: Designed by Jens Risom in 1961, the A-Chair is an elegant expression of timeless design. It features an A-frame for added support that also emphasises the chair’s signature details and timeless characteristics. The curved lines of the two-piece back and loose seat cushion accentuate the comfort and softness of this foam-filled chair. Select from a range of upholstered fabrics and a timber or metal frame.
Piloti stone coffee table: Designed by Hugo Passos, the stone Piloti coffee tables add a refined yet luxurious statement to any room. Fredericia has applied its expertise in wood craftsmanship to create a discreet profiling of the edges that has never been seen before in the marble table market. The sleek top transitions gracefully with the round supporting legs resulting in a seamless visual impression.
Tableau round coffee table in stone: Tableau is a sculptural series of tables merging graceful geometric lines and curves designed by renowned design-studio, Space Copenhagen, for Fredericia. Tableau’s latest variant is crafted in stone, featuring a round top and showcasing its effortless elegance and innate sense of exclusivity. Stone helps to add a tactile quality to the series, where each table features unique, subtle differences in surface patterns.
