Fritz Hansen Egg Chair

Fritz Hansen Egg Chair

The internationally famed Egg Chair is a ground-breaking design from 1958. Its designer Arne Jacobsen is celebrated widely in architecture and design circles for his immeasurable contribution to the modern design industry. Fritz Hansen produces Egg Chair today using simple tools, quality materials and time-honoured techniques.

Jacobsen designed the Egg chair for the lobby and reception areas in the Royal Hotel, in Copenhagen. The commission to design every element of the hotel building as well as the furniture was Jacobsen’s grand opportunity to put his theories of integrated design and architecture into practice. The Egg chair is one of the triumphs of Jacobsen’s total design – a sculptural contrast to the building’s almost exclusively vertical and horizontal surfaces. The Egg chair sprang from a new technique, which Jacobsen was the first to use; a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery. Like a sculptor, Jacobsen strove to find the shell’s perfect shape in clay at home in his own garage. Because of the unique shape, the Egg guarantees a bit of privacy in otherwise public spaces and the Egg chair – with or without footstool – is ideal for lounge and waiting areas as well as the home.
