Danish Design Store is proud to offer one of Republic of Fritz Hansen’s newest additions: the Minuscule Chair and Minuscule Table by Cecilie Manz.
According to Republic of Fritz Hansen:
minuscule™ … is designed for informal settings. The name minuscule represents the informal and understated style, for which the Scandinavians are so famous.
minuscule has a simple and elegant design that emerged as the result of a series of experimental workshops involving designer Cecilie Manz and the Republic of Fritz Hansen. The workshops revolved around materials, and there were no preset guidelines or creative restrictions. “To me, design always begins with the material. I need to put my hands on all the materials before I can tell if they’re something I can work with,” says designer Cecilie Manz.
Recently, Cecilie Manz received the prestigious 2012 Good Design Award for the Minuscule Chair and Table … and we can see why. What do you think?
The Republic of Fritz Hansen just released a special edition of the Arne Jacobsen Oxford Chair that is now available at Danish Design Store!
Original professor chairs at Oxford
Fifty years ago Jacobsen designed the original Oxford Chair for the professors at St. Catherine’s College in Oxford, UK. The high back version was the original “professor’s chair,” which quickly evolved into Fritz Hansen’s iconic Oxford Series.
The 50th Anniversary Oxford Chair brings back the original wood veneer with upholstered panels on the front sections and brushed aluminum arms. However, Fritz Hansen has unveiled three updated colors from Kvadrat: Orange, Light Blue, and Petrol.
The chair is available in two models:
- FH 3273 Model – fixed seat height and flat toes: $3,374
- FH 3293 Model – adjustable seat height, tilt and castors: $3,894
A simple ergonomic design makes the Oxford Chair ideal for use as an everyday office chair or anywhere in the house you want a bit of class.

The Fritz Hansen PK8 Chair is a relatively new addition to the Fritz Hansen collection. For many years, The PK8™ existed only as a prototype in the home of Hanne Kjærholm, the wife of Poul Kjærholm. The PK8 was put into production in close collaboration with Hanne Kjærholm and introduced to the public in connection with the 2007 exhibition about Poul Kjærholm, “The furniture architect”, at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, north of Copenhagen.

We’re not sure how we’ve gone months of Monday Morsels without calling out the Jacobsen Ant Chair. These simple and stylish chairs first appeared in the canteen of Danish pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk in 1952. The Jacobsen Ant Chair (“Myren” in Danish) has a fitting name: the Ant Chair’s silhouette resembles an ant with its head raised.
Here we feature the four-leg version of the Jacobsen Ant Chair. All images courtesy: Republic of Fritz Hansen.
We took last week off because of our Autumn Sale … so now we’re back on track with our Monday Morsels. This week: the PK61 Table by the Republic of Fritz Hansen.
@RubenAugusto requested this elegant table on Twitter, so follow Danish Design Store to request next week’s: @danishdesign1.
