A wooden Ant chair designed by the Dannish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen, manufactured by Fritz Hansen. He designed the chair in 1952 for the canteen of the pharmaceutical firm Novo Nordisk, originally made of plastic, the chair was designed to be light, stable and easy to stack up. It was named Ant because of the shape of the seat and backrest which is similar to an ant with its head raised. The original design had only three legs, later the option with four was added to the production. The seat is made of bent beech plywood, painted to a bright yellow colour that slightly reveals the pattern of the wood, the legs are made of tubular, chromium-plated steel. The chair is in an excellent condition without any wear and tear.
