Accent your interior with this hero of mid-century design: the instantly recognisable Egg Ottoman, designed to accompany the Egg Chair, by Arne Jacobsen. Upholstered in Kvadrat’s Divina fabric in an assortment of hues, the Egg Ottoman 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 Egg Ottoman’s fluid curves offered a sculptural contrast to the building’s straight-edges and vertical lines.
The Egg Ottoman was crafted using entirely new techniques for the time, with Jacobsen being the first to utilise a strong foam inner shell underneath the footstool’s upholstery. Using a unique process, Jacobsen tested and prototyped the shape and forms of the Egg Collection using clay in his home studio.
This edition of the Egg Ottoman is upholstered in Kvadrat’s Divina fabric, crafted from rich, 100% new wool with a solid pattern and designed by Finn Sködt. With a contemporary look and premium texture, Divina serves as the perfect enhancement to the curves of the iconic Egg Ottoman and is available in a selection of colours.
Manufactured to exacting standards by Fritz Hansen, Arne Jacobsen’s Egg Ottoman makes the perfect partner for the Egg Chair and will retain its bold presence and immaculate presentation for years to come.
