Accent your interior with this true hero of mid-century design: the instantly recognisable swivel Swan Chair by Arne Jacobsen, upholstered in Elegance Leather in an assortment of finishes and 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.
This edition of the Swan Chair is upholstered in Sørensen’s Elegance Leather, a firm yet flexible aniline variety crafted from the finest European rawhide from Alpine cattle, with visible, natural markings that only get better with age. Beautifully soft and smooth, Elegance Leather serves as the perfect enhancement to the curves of the iconic Swan Chair and is available in a selection of hues.
Manufactured to exacting standards by Fritz Hansen, Arne Jacobsen’s Swan Chair makes an inspiring addition to any space and will retain its bold presence and immaculate presentation for years to come.
