" 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 " by Fritz Hansen is its shape, which is reminiscent of an egg shell due to the curved lines. This invites the Egg Chair invites you to sit comfortably and shields the seated person from the sides and back. In addition, the backrest is curved at the upper end and is thus reminiscent of a classic wing chair. This makes the stay in the Egg Chair becomes a private and relaxing affair, even in public places.
Originally designed for the lobby of a hotel, Arne Jacobsen's intention was to create an armchair whose design would fit into a high-class environment and at the same time provide privacy in public places. With or without a footstool, it is perfect for reception and waiting areas as well as for the home.
The Egg Chair from Fritz Hansen is available in other versions and colours as well as with a matching footstool.
