Because of its unique shape, the Egg Chair guarantees privacy in public spaces and creates a refuge of exceptional comfort in the home. Originally designed for the infamous SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, Jacobsen wanted to create a piece that contrasted with the rigid modernist exterior of the building. Like a sculptor, he first perfected the chair’s shape in clay at home in his studio, a design defined by soft and organic curves. Boasting an adjustable tilt mechanism, the Egg Chair caters to individual sitting needs and can be purchased independently or with a matching footstool for ultimate bodily support.
