One of just 1958 pieces, the limited-edition Swan Chair celebrates the 60th anniversary of this true hero of mid-century design.
The instantly recognisable swivel Swan Chair by Arne Jacobsen, upholstered in Pure Leather in an assortment of finishes, 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 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 limited-edition version of the Swan Chair is upholstered in Sørensen’s Pure leather, a certified allergy-friendly and IVN natural leather with a subtle surface texture and distinctive markings that will age beautifully with the development of an elegant patina.
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.
