Design Story


Arne Jacobsen designed the "Swan" and the "Egg" in 1958 for the lounge area of the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. According to legend, the designer was inspired by nature and especially by the many magnificent swans in the city. Thus, the armrests and the backrest resemble the body shape of the majestic birds. The entire seat is made of plastic and polyurethane foam and is upholstered in high quality fabric or leather. It rests on a rotating star aluminium base and tilts with the movement of the user. The Swan Chair by Fritz Hansen with its inviting shape ensures high seating comfort and relaxation while reading and sitting together with family, friends or work colleagues. An absolute design classic, the Arne Jacobsen armchair is just at home in the living room, home office, company reception areas or hotel lobbies.
