Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair by Fritz Hansen
Jacobsen Egg Chairs display the art and mastery of Arne Jacobsen perhaps better than any other Jacobsen chair. The Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair graces the world's finest lobbies and lounges. Of course, the Jacobsen Egg Chair can feel just at home in your living room.
Arne Jacobsen first designed the Jacobsen Egg Chair for the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The Egg Chair presents one of Jacobsen's triumphs of total design: a sculptural contrast to the building’s almost exclusively vertical and horizontal surfaces.
The Jacobsen Egg Chair sprang from a new technique, which Jacobsen was the first to use: using a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery. Like a sculptor, Jacobsen perfected the shape of the Egg Chair in clay, and then manufactured it with the help of Fritz Hansen. The Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair's unique shape guarantees a bit of privacy, making the Egg Chair ideal for public spaces.
