Fritz Hansen Egg Chair - Fabric
Arne Jacobsen originally created the Egg Chair for the lobby and reception areas in the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. Read about the history and craftsmanship of this design icon in our article The Egg Chair: A Classic is Born.
The Egg 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 – with or without footstool – is ideal for lounge and waiting areas as well as the home.
