Accent your interior with this true hero of mid-century design: the instantly recognisable swivel Swan Chair by Arne Jacobsen, upholstered in Kvadrat’s Divina Melange fabric in an assortment of hues 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 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 characteristic curves of the compact Swan Chair, and is available in a selection of colours with a polished aluminium base.
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.
