Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg™ as well as the Swan™ for the lobby and lounge areas at the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, in 1958. The design of both chairs was unseen. Jacobsen acted as a sculptor when designing them. By producing the Egg Chair in 1958 he proved it possible to create a lounge chair in one seat shell, upholster it perfectly and mount it to a base that could carry the weight of a human being. Later he designed a matching foot stool. 
Both lounge chairs are unique and unquestioned design icons. They became cult objects in the 90’s and are now classics you purchase for a lifetime of pleasure. Both the vintage and new versions are wanted and sold all over the world. Fall in love with Arne Jacobsen's masterpiece, which adds a beautiful, sophisticated expression to any interior - and brings joy to any design enthusiast!

The shell has an adjustable tilt mechanism made of steel, which can be adjusted to the weight of the individual user by an adjustment handle. The foot stool is without a swivel function.


It is also possible to order this swivel chair with an automatic return. You can also order a matching foot stool with the same upholstery.
