The Egg Chair is a true classic that will never go out of style. Designed in 1958 by Arne Jacobsen. Our Replica Egg chair is constructed with a fiberglass shell, just like the original. Padded with multi-density foam, the Egg is upholstered in wool fabric with a huge range of colors to chose from. The base is made with stainless steel.
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) a curvaceous chair that balanced the angular appearance of the building. At a time when others were experimenting with bent tubular steel, Jacobsen focused on the upholstered armchair, believing a solution existed that was a refuge but still true to modern ideals. Indeed, he met that goal in creating the Egg. Set on a rotating base, the Egg Chair allows sitters to swivel toward a conversation area or away from others if privacy is desired ¨C a nice option to have in a public area ¨C or tilt back for relaxed lounging. More than 50 years after its design, the Egg Chair is still used in advertising, film, and television as a symbol of sophisticated urbanism.
