Design Story

Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg Chair as well as the Swan Armchair in 1958 for the lobby and lounge areas of ​​the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen; a commission which foresaw Jacobsen complete the complete design of the interior design, which, in addition to the lounge chairs The Swan and The Egg, also includes other iconic designs - from textiles to the AJ floor lamp up to a futuristic cutlery series. With the SAS Hotel Jacobsen exemplifies his idea of ​​integrating architecture and design - and created with the organic Egg Chair the perfect formal contrast to the almost exclusively horizontal and vertical lines of the building itself. In creation the Egg Chair Jacobsen employed a novel technology: a robust plastic inner shell in combination with a cold foam padding, for which he created the perfect plaster mould like a sculptor in his Klampenborg garage. With the Swan he created a second lounge chair, which hints at the lively, trendy design of the 1960s, and has since, as with the Egg been produced by Fritz Hansen.
For the 60th anniversary of the Egg Chair, Fritz Hansen have created an extravagant limited edition of the design classic. The aluminium frame has been finished with a 23-carat gold plating, while the seat shell features covers made of high-quality Pure leather. Due to its natural state, the exquisite aniline leather can feature remnants of insect bites or have visible neck folds, which under influence of sunlight will darken with time. The gold-plated base of the Egg Chair will also gradually gain a charming patina, thereby making the Arne Jacobsen design classic, which is only available in limited quantities, a rare and exquisite piece.
