Fritz Hansen is a Danish design and furniture company. Fritz Hansen’s collections consist of internationally well-known furniture classics as well as modern furniture, lightning and accessories.

Fritz Hansen has a long design heritage which goes back to 1872 and is well known for its collaborations with Danish furniture architects such as Arne Jacobsen, Hans J. Wegner and Poul Kjærholm. The modern collection consists of designs from international designers such as Jaime Hayon and Piero Lissoni. Common for both collections is a desire to create unique furniture in which form and function are united. In 2022, Fritz Hansen bought Skagerak which today is part of the Fritz Hansen portfolio as The Skagerak Collection.

C.W. Obel has been a co-owner of Fritz Hansen through Skandinavisk Holding since 1979.
