Design Story

Arne Jacobsen designed the Swan Chair in 1958 just as with the Egg Chair for the lobby and lounge areas of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. With the commission for the hotel building Jacobsen was also charged with designing every detail of the external and internal design, thus the Danish architect and designer was given a unique opportunity to express his integrative approach to design and architecture. The result was a hotel as a Gesamtkunstwerk, and with which Jacobsen has set himself a design monument from the building over the interior and fabrics through to the cutlery. The Fritz Hansen Swan Chair represents Jacobsen's close affinity with nature - according to legend he was inspired in his design by the elegant water birds which are so omnipresent in Copenhagen. With its avians inspiration the Swan Chair shares the common, graceful swing, which arises from its construction principle: the one-piece curved, cold foam-padded plastic seat shell, which is leather or fabric based and mounted on a rotatable star base made of aluminium. The prototypes of the Swan Chair and the Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair originated in a garage in Klampenborg north of Copenhagen and the finished designs have always been produced by Fritz Hansen. And Fritz Hansen alone.
