Fritz Hansen Egg Lounge Chair - Leather
The iconic Egg Chair was originally designed by Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen for the lobby and reception areas of the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.
Discover the story of the birth of this classic chair 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.
