About

A lovely original Egg chair by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen, double signed, with a foil label bearing a date stamp of 08 / 1967 and again on the underside of the base with the FH Made In Denmark stamp.  Upholstery is in very good clean vintage condition and ready to be used immediately. We can steam clean prior to shipping upon request. No tears or issues to the fabric, only a few minor snags visible upon close inspection. Also a great candidate for reupholstery with new fabric or leather.  The Egg chair was originally conceptualized for the SAS Royal Copenhagen Hotel, Denmark, which Jacobsen designed in it's entirety from the building itself to the flatware. This biomorphic club chair cradles and supports the human body while allowing for conversation or privacy. The Egg lounge chair stands on a cast aluminum four star base, offering 360° of movement and retains the original manufacturers stamp under the seat and under the base. This swivel armchair is without an ottoman however we have a black leather Egg Chair and Ottoman if you are interested - contact us for details. This quintessentially iconic chair and ottoman would be ideal for anyone who appreciates Scandinavian design or wants a bit of "wow factor". It would look apt in a living room, study, family room, den, or screening room and be an excellent choice in a hospitality, retail or corporate location such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium. Perfect gift for the consummate collector or interior designer. Measurements: 42" H x 35" W x 32" D Seat height 16.5" Seat depth 19.5".

About Arne Jacobsen (Designer)

The eye-catching work of the Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen often introduces new collectors to mid-20th century furniture. With their fluid lines and sculptural presence, Jacobsen’s signature pieces — the elegant “Swan chair” and the cozy-yet-cutting edge “Egg chair,” both first presented in 1958 — are iconic representations of both the striking aesthetic of the designers of the era and their concomitant attention to practicality and comfort. Jacobsen designed furniture that had both gravitas and groove.

     Though Jacobsen is a paragon of Danish modernism, his approach to design was the least “Danish” of those who are counted as his peers. The designs of Hans Wegner, Finn Juhl, Børge Mogensen and others grew out of their studies as cabinetmakers. They prized skilled craftsmanship and their primary material was carved, turned and joined wood. Jacobsen was first and foremost an architect, and while he shared his colleagues’ devotion to quality of construction, he was far more open to other materials such as metal and fiberglass.

     Many of Jacobsen’s best-known pieces had their origin in architectural commissions. His molded-plywood, three-legged “Ant chair” (1952) was first designed for the cafeteria of a pharmaceutical company headquarters. The tall-backed “Oxford chair” was made for the use of dons at St. Catherine’s College, Oxford, whose Jacobsen-designed campus opened in 1963. The “Swan,” “Egg” and “Drop” chairs and the “AJ” desk lamp were all created as part of Jacobsen’s plan for the SAS Royal Copenhagen Hotel, which opened in 1960. (The hotel has since been redecorated, but one guest room has been preserved with all-Jacobsen accoutrements.) To Jacobsen’s mind, the chief merit of any design was practicality. He designed the first stainless-steel cutlery set made by the Danish silver company Georg Jensen; Jacobsen’s best-selling chair — the plywood “Series 7” — was created to provide lightweight, stackable seating for modern eat-in kitchens. But as you will see from the objects on these pages, style never took a backseat to function in Arne Jacobsen’s work. His work merits a place in any modern design collection.
