Robert’s Comment 

This is by far one of my favourites. The Egg chair is a classic and the possibilities to spice up this design are endless. We need 6 meters of a fabric of your choice (we supply all the main Fabrics Houses or you can supply) and we upholster for you. I really have seen many great results. Perfect as a statement piece. Get creative and have some fun!

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 Egg chair 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.
The Egg chair was also designed as a couch, but very few of these were made due the difficulty involved in making it, plus a design “flaw” – the couch is too big to be covered by two entire cow-hides, which is just possible with the Egg chair. This leaves a visible stitching down the centre of the couch – not very Jacobsen!
