Egg Chair

£5,551.00

Designed by Arne Jacobsen
Manufactured by Fritz Hansen

The Egg is one of the triumphs of Jacobsen’s total design – a sculptural contrast to the building’s almost exclusively vertical and horizontal surfaces. The Egg sprang from a new technique, which Jacobsen was the first to use; a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery.

Dimensions: (H) 107 (W) 86 (D) 79 to 95 cm Seat Height: 37cm

Product Description

The Fritz Hansen Egg™ chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen for the lobby and reception areas in the Royal Hotel, in Copenhagen. The commission to design every element of the hotel building as well as the furniture was Jacobsen’s grand opportunity to put his theories of integrated design and architecture into practice.

The Egg is a sculptural contrast to the building’s almost exclusively vertical and horizontal surfaces. The Egg Chair sprang from a new technique, which Jacobsen was the first to use; a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery. Because of the unique shape, the Egg guarantees a bit of privacy in otherwise public spaces and the Egg with or without footstool, is ideal for lounge and waiting areas as well as the home. The Egg is available in a wide variety of fabric upholstery as well as leather, always combined with a star shaped base in satin polished aluminium.
