Like the Series7 chair designed in 1955 by Arne Jacobsen, now clad in velvet, the Ant Deco chair, again by Jacobsen, with a tribal print, and the Ant in new pastel hues like yellow and pink, for spring. Reissues include the Planner tables, accessories and shelves, starting from the original project by the American designer Paul McCobb in the 1950s.
