A Timeless Classic: The Iconic Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen

The Egg chair was designed in 1958 by architect and designer Arne Jacobsen. It was one of the three designs (Drop, Swan and Egg chairs) created specifically for the Radisson SAS hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark.

   It is believed that the Egg Chair was inspired at the time by Eero Saarinen’s “Womb Chair”, which will discuss later. The unique shape of the Egg Chair provides a level of privacy with its”winged design”. The Egg Chair originated from Jacobsen’s garage, and was originally cast in plaster. Today, the chair has an adjustable tilt feature and is formed with fiberglass, with high-density polyurethane foam padding around the entire chair structure.

   The reproduction of this iconic chair can be ordered in a wide range of materials and colors, so it can fit your needs perfectly. Needles to say, all materials are fire-resistant & non-toxic (Baby friendly).

   Arne Emil Jacobsen, Hon. FAIA (11 February 1902 – 24 March 1971) was a Danish architect and furniture designer. He is remembered for his contribution to architectural functionalism and for the worldwide success he enjoyed with simple well-designed chairs.
