No-one was more responsible for the international prestige of 'Danish Modern' than Arne Jacobsen and in his Egg chair, Jacobsen created one of the most enduring symbols of the 20th century.
The chair and foot stool were designed for the SAS Royal Hotel, Copenhagen's first skyscraper, which its critics described as a 'glass cigarbox'.
With the hotel, Jacobsen attempted a modernist total-work-of-art: he designed everything from the cutlery to the tower... and everything in between, including the Swan and Egg chairs. Their organic forms contrast tellingly with the uncompromising geometry of the building itself.
