Fritz Hansen Egg Chair - Hallingdal Fabric
Available now until the 30th November 2018 at a special promotional price of £4495.
The Fritz Hansen Egg Lounge Chair, designed in 1958 by Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen, is a landmark of iconic modern furniture design.
Jacobsen originally designed the chair for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. He wanted to create a chair that contrasted with the rigid modernist outside exterior of the hotel, prompting the creation of a design that is defined by soft and organic curved lines. The stunningly sculptural shape creates an atmosphere of retreat, refuge and exceptional comfort, ideal for public spaces as well as in the home; adding emphasis to the importance of relaxation and personal privacy. Jacobsen was the first to use a strong foam inner shell under the upholstery, crafting the shell in his garage until the shape was uniquely perfect. The Egg caters to individual sitting needs by having an adjustable tilt mechanism and is a timeless piece that has been carefully constructed to last generations. The Egg is upholstered with Kvadrat Hallingdal fabric, made from 70% wool and 30% viscose; the combination of these materials ensures high wearability and beautiful depth in colour. The chair can be purchased on its own or with a matching footstool for ultimate bodily support. Looking for an alternative material, configuration or have a question?
