Celebrating Design Icons

A Fritz Hansen 60th Anniversary collection,
in partnership with Design Hotels™


You may not be old enough to remember the birth of Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Egg™, Swan™, and Drop™ chairs in 1958, but rest assured you’ve seen them, sat in them, and loved them over the past 60 years. Now, to celebrate these iconic and timeless design statements, international design brand Fritz Hansen is joining us as we host three collaborative installations—at Trunk Hotel in Tokyo, The Sukhotai Bangkok, and The Warehouse Hotel in Singapore—that will bring together designers and creative influencers. Each event will run for a week, with Design Hotels™ Community members invited to a private, opening-night preview party in each location.

What promises to be a gorgeous theme come to life, the Tokyo event—at Trunk Hotel in the center of city’s fashion-focused Shibuya neighborhood—will showcase an installation by Nicolai Bergmann, the floral artist who has revolutionized Tokyo’s floral scene. Join Bergmann and local designers on March 12 for a not-to-be-missed preview party at Trunk Hotel.

First he created The Warehouse Hotel on the banks of Robertson Quay—a high-style portal to Singapore’s richly diverse culture—now designer Chris Lee orchestrates the final leg of the Design Hotels™/Fritz Hansen anniversary party. On March 29 at The Warehouse, rub shoulders with Lee himself, our newest Influencer in The Design Hotels™ Book 2018.



Sixty years ago, designer Arne Jacobsen—the Danish son of a safety pin seller—teamed up with international design brand Fritz Hansen to create the first design-driven hotel. The project gave birth to these three iconic chairs—now available in a new, limited-edition collection. Discover how the Jacobsen/Hansen partnership came to be and how it changed the face of design as we know it.
