Design Story

Design

The Egg Chair, designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1957, owes its name to its organically shaped seat, reminiscent as it is of a semi-open egg. Thanks to its generous seat the user can employ a variety of sitting positions and always benefit from the chairs considered design. The Fritz Hansen Egg is no coincidental product, much like the Arne Jacobsen Swan Chair it was designed for the lobby of Jacobsen's SAS Hotel in Copenhagen. The aim of the project was to use the furniture to create an inviting, relaxed, intimate and at the same time sophisticated and exclusive atmosphere: Arne Jacobsen found a more than adequate response to this challenge with the harmonious, aesthetic Egg Chair, a lounge chair, backrest, headrest and armrests as if cast as one body. The Fritz Hansen Egg is today one of the absolute classics of design history and owing to its status is regularly to be found in luxury hotels, company headquarters as well as in films and advertising campaigns.
