Egg Chair

By Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen

Denmark, 1960s
Unveiled at the Royal Copenhagen Hotel in Denmark in 1958, the poster child of Danish design has become one of the most coveted chairs of all time. Fifty years after architect Arne Jacobsen first created the swiveling chair, the timeless, modern icon is found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Art Center in Tokyo, and in residences around the world. Fritz Hansen, the original Danish manufacturer, still produces the chair, which is completely handmade with over 1,300 stitches and more than four yards of fabric. This example, model 1164, is an early edition. It has been reupholstered in Maraham's Hallingdal wool textile in a vibrant orange (color 590).
