Originally designed for the SAS Air Terminal attached to the airline’s Royal Hotel in Stockholm, the Series 3300 Easy Chair is a design classic, showcasing designer Arne Jacobsen’s complete mastery of both form and function. In stark contrast to the organic forms of Fritz Hansen’s Egg and Swan chairs, the Series 3300 features a bold, geometric aesthetic, accentuated by the external chrome steel tube frame. The interior of the chair is filled with cold-cured foam mounted on wood, making it an exceptionally comfortable place to relax. Intended to add sumptuous comfort to a terminal space, the chair has become the heart of residential spaces the world over.
Arne Jacobsen was one of Denmark’s most influential 20th century architects and designers. Jacobsen’s buildings and products meld modernist ideals with a Nordic love of naturalism.
