Arne Jacobsen's instantly recognisable Egg Ottoman is a hero of mid-century design, upholstered in Kvadrat’s Divina fabric in an assortment of hues 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 ottoman's upholstery. Using a unique process, Jacobsen tested and prototyped its shape and form using clay in his home studio. The ottoman sits atop a polished aluminium base and its intricate configuration requires bespoke upholstery. This edition boasts Kvadrat’s Divina fabric, crafted from rich, 100% new wool with a solid pattern as designed by Finn Sködt.
Conceptualised in 1958 for Jacobsen's architectural endeavour, the Royal Hotel Copenhagen, the ottoman's curves offer 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.
