Egg Chair – Classic Leather by Arne Jacobsen

Posted under Uncategorized

Arne Jacobsen designed the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, as well as many of the furnishings. For its busy lobby, he created the biomorphic Egg (1958) and Swan, which are believed to be the first swiveling upholstered chairs. For a public area, the handcrafted Egg Chair is unique in that sitters can swivel toward the conversation area or away from others if privacy is desired. A tilt mechanism allows for relaxed lounging and the high back and curving elements are reminiscent of a traditional wing chair. Together they cocoon the sitter in a single-piece molded shell that appears to hover over the floor. Almost 50 years after its design, the Egg Chair is still used in advertising, film and television as a symbol of sophisticated urbanism. Made in Denmark. Original design and licensed manufacture by Republic of Fritz Hansen.

    The Egg Chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 in his typical style, where there was no fear of pushing the material to its limit, and often using entirely new materials to make his designs come true.
    The Egg Chair is a strikingly organically shaped upholstered seat on slender metal bases.
    The Egg was designed as a couch also – though the actual piece was thought to be a figment of someone’s imagination. But only a handful of Egg-couches have ever been made. A few were made for the Radisson Hotel, and a few years back, some were made as a “special edition” couch.
    The Egg chair was featured in the movie Men in Black and briefly seen in Back to the Future II, as well as shown in a promotional poster for Chicken Little as a reference to Men in Black.
