Combining a chromed steel frame with generously proportioned leather upholstery, the Series 3300 Easy Chair was originally designed to provide a comfortable place to relax in Stockholm’s SAS Air Terminal. Attached to SAS’s Royal Hotel, widely regarded as the purest expression of Arne Jacobsen’s timeless aesthetic.
The Series 3300 Easy Chairs contrast with the beautifully contoured forms found elsewhere in the Royal Hotel, symbolising a new era of prosperity and modernity. The addition of leather upholstery elevates Jacobsen’s design to a new level of comfort, equally at home as the cornerstone of a living space, or tucked away in a bedroom for an evening of relaxation.
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.
