The Egg Chair was designed for use in the Royal Copenhagen SAS hotel. In this project, prolific figure Arne Jacobsen designed everything that came under the ‘interior design’ label – from furniture to textiles to cutlery.
To this day, most of his work was replaced – only one room was kept to original design, including the blue Egg Chairs. Lucilily, the room’s still available for booking should you feel like embracing a real piece of Danish design history.
Ahead of its Time
The Egg Chair was cleverly constructed and was one of Jacobsen’s most impressive creations, developed using an innovative technique for its time. It has been in production ever since its release!
The base consists of a satin chromed, swivel center of welded steel tubing, which is connected to an aluminium star swivel base. This creates a beautiful juxtaposition to the curves of the leather Egg Chair. Yet, its distinctive and unique design doesn’t detract from its ergonomics.
It provides chair users with an utterly comfortable sitting experience, while affording a degree of privacy. This was perfect for the busy waiting room and reception area of the SAS hotel way back then.
Timeless Danish Icon
Though Jacobsen designed this timeless beauty for the hotel, its popularity exponentially increased. It called for a small run of “special edition” Egg Chairs to be produced shortly after the hotel’s opening.
60 years later, the Egg Chair is the most popular piece for homeowners and designers globally. Its curves makes it a great addition to any modernist interior. Being a sculpture, this masterpiece stands on its own.
We hope this inspires you. As you can see, the Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair is an investment for the future. Due to it’s timeless aesthetic, this is not a design that’ll go out of fashion anytime soon. For high-end Egg Chair replicas, visit Manhattan Home Design.
