Egg Chair - Classic Leather

Arne Jacobsen designed the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, as well as many of the furnishings. For its busy lobby, he created the biomorphic Egg (1958) and Swan, which are believed to be the first swiveling upholstered chairs. For a public area, the handcrafted Egg Chair is unique in that sitters can swivel toward the conversation area or away from others if privacy is desired. A tilt mechanism allows for relaxed lounging and the high back and curving elements are reminiscent of a traditional wing chair. Together they cocoon the sitter in a single-piece molded shell that appears to hover over the floor. Almost 50 years after its design, the Egg Chair is still used in advertising, film and television as a symbol of sophisticated urbanism. DWR is the first retailer in the U.S. to offer the Egg in cowhide upholstery. Made from the highest-quality hides – which are required to cover such a large upholstered area – the tri-color cowhide will vary in color from chair to chair. Made in Denmark. Original design and licensed manufacture by Republic of Fritz Hansen.
