Republic of Fritz Hansen, the world’s most revered Danish
furniture design brand, has joined forces with Skandium, London’s much-loved Scandinavian design emporium, to launch its first flagship store at 13/14 Margaret Street in the heart of The Langham Estate.
Following a comprehensive refurbishment, the new store, which comprises 5,650 sq ft over ground and lower ground floors is housed in a magnificent duplex space in a 1930’s period building. The store commands a prominent position, cornering Margaret Street and Great Titchfield Street. Large, double-volume windows flank both streets, which will be filled with enticing room set displays showcasing the very best and latest Fritz Hansen furniture and Scandinavian products. The store aims to be London’s leading design pitt stop where buyers, interior designers, architects, stylists, journalists and design fans can meet, source the latest Scandinavian design offerings and be inspired.
A joint venture with Skandium, London’s foremost retailer of contemporary Scandinavian furniture, lighting and kitchenware for the home andoffice, has sourced unique pieces and hand-picked collections that will be initially available for sale exclusively at the Republic of Fritz Hansen Store.
This includes a comprehensive glassware showcase, vintage and contemporary Danish accessories, and a discerning range of cookware and inspirational lifestyle books.
Throughout its near 140-year history, Fritz Hansen has produced a rich portfolio of furniture classics, thanks to a series of partnerships with visionary designers and architects, including Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton, Hans J. Wegner, Poul Kjærholm and Jaime Hayón, who designed the new FAVN™ sofa to be launched on the market in September 2011 and which will also be available
at the new store. Many of the company’s furniture designs are instantly
recognisable, such as Arne Jacobsen’s Egg™ and Swan™ chairs.
