Egg Chair: 6 reasons that confirm its versatility

Conceived in 1958 by the Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen, the Egg Chair It was the result of an order made by the Scandinavian airline SAS to take full care of the design and construction of the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel from Copenhagen, Denmark. Such was the involvement of Jacobsen in the project, which not only designed and carefully cared for the architectural elements of the new building, but had the opportunity to put into practice his theories on the integration of interior design in architecture, designing everything the furniture.

In this way he created the recognized and original Egg Chair that to this day is one of the great icons of modern design and that we so repeatedly see reproduced in magazines and manuals of interior design and decoration.


Made in a single piece that solves masterly seat, backrest and armrests, Jacobsen struggled to find the perfect shape of the frame by testing with clay in his own home to find the ideal shape for a chair that was comfortable and allowed a bit of privacy in public places.
