Fritz Hansen 60th Anniversary Edition Egg Chair
The 60th anniversary of the iconic Egg™ chair, as well as the SAS Royal Hotel which it was originally created for, is celebrated through this limited edition with a selection of exclusive materials, a pure and natural colour palette and a respect for Arne Jacobsen's original design.
We take a closer look at the history and craftsmanship of this forever design in our latest article The Egg Chair: A Classic is Born.
Nature was the starting point for the design process of this 60th-anniversary edition. The result is a design appealing to all senses with a mission to turn pure materials into personal design objects. The materials vary from the soft and serene pure natural leather to a sublime 23 karat gold coated base, all of which will create patina and an expression of their own over time. The Egg chair comes in a limited edition of just 1958 pieces. Each chair will feature a special 60th-anniversary leather engraving, with numbering and is available until 31st December 2018.

Materials & finishes
Seat shell in polyurethane foam with glass fibre reinforcement. The foam for the upholstery and the seat cushion is cold cured polyurethane foam. The shell has an adjustable tilt mechanism, which can be adjusted to the weight of the individual user. This 60th Anniversary edition is finished in pure natural aniline leather featuring beauty marks such as scars, tiny insect bites and visible necklines – all of which reflects the natural life the leather hides are the remains of. Please note that the colour will darken and obtain a more vintage look with time, making every item unique whilst exposed to sunlight and usage.
The base consists of a swivel centre part (diameter 38x2mm) of welded steel tubing and a 4-star base in injection moulded aluminium. In this version, the classic aluminium surface has been plated with 23 karat gold and the result has an almost satin gloss adding to the exclusive expression of the limited edition design. Like the leather, this carefully selected base will change slightly in colour over time. The gloss becomes less shiny and a tad darker, underlining the patina of the design as it ages with beauty.
Standard 5 year warranty. My Republic Extended Warranty includes 5 years for the base and 10 years for the shell and leather.
