" Egg Chair ": Security and privacy
In 1958 Arne Jacobsen designed the egg for the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. This originally shaped chair has since become synonymous with Danish furniture design all over the world.
The special thing about the so-called " Egg Chair "von Fritz Hansen is its shape, which reminds one of an egg shell due to its curved lines. Thus the Egg Chair for comfortable sitting and shields the seated person to the sides and back. In addition, the upper end of the backrest is curved, reminiscent of a classic wing chair. This makes the stay in the Egg Chair to a private and relaxing affair, even in public places.
Originally designed for the lobby of a hotel, it was Arne Jacobsen's intention to create an armchair that would fit into a high-class environment through its design and at the same time convey privacy in public places. It is ideal - with or without a footstool - for reception and waiting areas as well as for the home.
The Egg Chair von Fritz Hansen is available in further variants and colours and with matching footstool.
