The Egg Chair offers comfort and privacy at public places.
Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg for the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1958. This originally formed chair became a synonym for Danish furniture design all around the world. The Egg is perfectly suitable for receiving and waiting areas as well as for private homes.
The specialty at the Egg Armchair is its form that reminds of an eggshell through its curved lines. Thereby the chair invites to a comfortable seating experience and shields the sitting person from its laterals and to the back. Furthermore the backrest is bent at the upper end and reminds of a classic wings chair. That makes the stay inside of the Egg Armchair a private and restful matter, also at public places.
Originally designed for the lobby of the Hotel, the designer Arne Jacobsen wanted to create a chair that would suit a high quality surrounding through its sophisticated design and simultaneously offer a bit of privacy in public rooms.
The Egg is wonderfully suitable for receptions and waiting rooms as well as for private homes - with or without Ottoman.
The Egg Armchair from Fritz Hansen is also available in further colours as well as with the suitable foot stool.
