Republic of Fritz Hansen™ Store will celebrate the 50th anniversary of St. Catherine's College, Oxford through a host of events & exhibitions. Activities will include the launch of a special Oxford™ chair, designed by Arne Jacobsen for the college, and a much-anticipated collaboration with LEGO.

For this year's London Design Festival, Republic of Fritz Hansen™ Store will be celebrating two very special anniversaries with an assortment of activites.

2012 sees the 50th anniversary of St. Catherine's College, Oxford, a building designed by Danish architect and designed Arne Jacobsen in 1962. To celebrate this special occasion, Fritz Hansen are launching a new version of the Oxford chair, designed by Jacobsen for the college, during London Design Festival. Accompanying this launch will be a small exhibition all about the college, and about the wider works of Arne Jacobsen in general.

This year also sees the 60th anniversary of the iconic Ant chair, the first plywood stacking chair ever made, also designed by Arne Jacobsen. To celebrate this momentous event, Fritz Hansen have teamed up with a certain celebrity chef and more information about this will be unveiled after the 20th August.

Finally, Fritz Hansen are very excited to team up with Danish toy brand LEGO for a special event for children and families on Sunday 23rd September. Children will be invited into the Fritz Hansen store to build their version of 'The House of the Future' using LEGO bricks. Prizes for the best designs will include a familiy pass to Legoland Windsor and gift sets from LEGO.
