In 1958, Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg™ for the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. This organically shaped chair has since become synonymous with Danish furniture design throughout the world. Because of the unique shape, the Egg™ guarantees a bit of privacy in otherwise public spaces, and the Egg – with or without foot stool – is ideal for lounge and waiting areas as well as the home. The Egg is available in a wide variety of fabric upholstery as well as leather, always combined with a star shaped base in satin polished aluminum.
The shell is of polyurethane foam with glass fiber reinforcement. The shell has an adjustable tilt fitting which can be adjusted to the weight of the individual user. The tilt mechanism is made of steel sheet, steel tubing and spring steel. The adjustment handle is of polished drawn stainless steel. The base consists of a satin-polished swivel centre part of welded steel tubing (dia. 38 x 2 mm), a spindle of dia. 28 mm machining steel and a 4-star base in injection moulded aluminium. The leg ferrules are in black-grey synthetic material.
The Egg™ Chair and Foot Stool are available in select fabrics and leathers online. For additional selections, please visit our showroom, or call 1.888.276.1994.
