CASHMERE SWAN CHAIR
Originally designed in 1958 by Arne Jacobsen and still it works effortlessly in the finest contemporary interiors 50 years on. An icon of modern design that will never date and works in any space. I like the fact that it looks almost like a sculpture with its curvy lines and confident three dimensional appearance. Unlike competitor retailers our units have portions and dimensions that respect the original design for an authentic look. They have a good solid feel to them with a quality 360 degree rotation mechanism.

About the designer: Arne Jacobsen
It is very rare that a designer’s creations become classics within their own lifetime, but Arne Jacobsen achieved just that. The Swan and Egg chair are two such furniture designs to become classics during Jacobsen’s lifetime.
One of the grandfathers of modern minimalist style, Arne Jacobsen, a Danish architect and designer, was a perfect example of the “Danish Modern” style.
A fastidious perfectionist, Jacobsen stood out in all areas of architecture, interior decoration, furniture, textile and porcelain design. It is difficult to think of a higher designation for an architect than one of his projects, St. Catherine’s college, Oxford, being granted a Grade I listing for architecture in England.
Story of the piece
The Swan chair was first seen in 1958 when it graced the lobby and lounge areas of the Royal SAS Hotel in Copenhagen. It is typically Jacobsen, combining organic form and comfort. Initially designed in his garage, it is said Jacobsen was inspired by Eero Saarinen’s “Womb chair”, from which it gains some traits.
