Fritz Hansen Egg Lounge Chair - Leather
Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg for the lobby and reception areas in the Royal Hotel, Copenhagen.
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.
