The making of arne jacobsen butterfly chair 3107 by fritz hansen

The Model 3107 chair is a chair designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1955 that uses the previously invented technique through which plywood can be bent in three dimensions (which was invented by Charles and Ray Eames). Over 5 million units have been produced exclusively by Fritz Hansen. It is one of the most copied chairs in the world.

The chair, along with the Jacobsen's Ant chair, was, according to Jacobsen himself, inspired by a chair made by the husband and wife design team of Charles and Ray Eames.

The chair comes with a number of different undercarriages - both as a regular four-legged chair, an office chair with five wheels and as a barstool. It comes with armrests, a writing-table attached, and different forms of upholstering. To some extent, these additions mar the simple aesthetics of the chair, while contributing practical elements.

The chair is widely believed to have been used in Lewis Morley's iconic photograph of Christine Keeler; however, the chair used in this photograph was in fact an imitation and not the original Jacobsen model. After the publishing of the pictures sales rose dramatically. Numerous images in print media have been made with a celebrity mimicking the pose, notably David Frost and a pop single cover of the Spice Girls.
