Description

Arne Jacobsen's instantly recognisable Egg Chair is a hero of mid-century design. It is exclusively available at The Conran Shop in Kvadrat's Gentle 2 upholstery and manufactured by Fritz Hansen.

The Egg was crafted using new techniques for its 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 its shape and form using clay in his home studio. The chair sits atop a polished aluminium base and its intricate configuration requires bespoke upholstery. This version boasts Febrik's new wool blend for Kvadrat, specially sourced from The Netherlands and marks the first time that the chair is available to purchase in a velvet finish. 

Conceptualised in 1958 for Jacobsen's architectural endeavour, the Royal Hotel Copenhagen, the chair's curves offered a sculptural contrast to the building’s straight edges and vertical lines. Although renovated in 2018, Jacobsen's legacy is still prevalent in every space and room 606 remains unchanged, true to his original commission.
