Renowned across the globe as one of the driving forces behind modern Danish design, Arne Jacobsen was a perfectionist known for his simple, minimalist designs.

The Conran Shop

Originally training at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts where he studied architecture under the tutelage of Kay Fisker and Kaj Gottlob, Arne Jacobsen was initially influenced by the rationalist work of the architects Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius. Going on to design ultra-modern buildings such as the Bellevue Teatret near Copenhagen, the National Bank of Denmark and the Royal Danish Embassy in London, Jacobsen eventually turned his skilled hand to furniture design in the 1950s.

Inspired by the bent plywood designs of Charles and Ray Eames, Arne Jacobsen designed the iconic Ant Chair in 1951 and the Series 7 Chair followed in quick succession. Going on to create the legendary Egg and Swan Chairs for Copenhagen’s SAS Royal, his designs still garner admiration across the world today. True icons of mid-century Danish design, Arne Jacobsen’s creations are displayed in the permanent collections at the Vitra Design Museum in Basel, New York’s MoMA and London’s V&A.

Limited Edition Swan Chair Pure Leather & Gold Base

Limited Edition Swan Chair Pure Leather & Gold Base
One of just 1958 pieces, the limited-edition Swan Chair celebrates the 60th anniversary of this true hero of mid-century design. The instantly recognisable swivel Swan Chair by Arne Jacobsen, upholstered in Pure Leather in an assortment of finishes, is manufactured to exacting standards by Scandinavian furniture specialists Fritz Hansen.
Originally designed in 1958 for the lobby and reception areas of the Royal Hotel Copenhagen, the Swan Chair’s fluid curves offered a sculptural contrast to the building’s straight-edges and vertical lines. The Swan Chair was crafted using entirely new techniques for the time, with Jacobsen being the first to utilise a strong foam inner shell underneath the chair’s upholstery. Using a unique process, Jacobsen tested and prototyped the shape and form of the Swan Chair using clay in his home studio.
