In 1958, Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg for the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. This organically shaped chair has since become synonymous with Danish furniture design throughout the world. Because of the unique shape, the Egg guarantees a bit of privacy in otherwise public spaces, and the Egg - with or without ottoman - is ideal for lounge and waiting areas as well as the home. The shell is of polyurethane foam with glass fibre reinforcement. The base consists of a satin-polished swivel centre part of welded steel tubing.
Year of design: 1958
