Arne Jacobsen designed this iconic piece when he was on a commission serving the Royals in Copenhagen. Considering its large frame and the featured cushion, this chair can also fall in the “couch” category. This design was among the firsts that presented a hard interior and made pleasantly comfortable thanks to the smooth upholstery. Later on, the lining was changed for fabric, so as to avoid the seam in the middle.
The first word that people use to describe the Egg Chair at the initial impression is “eggshell”.
The curvy shape makes it seem something quite different than a typical chair. Top and base sides are curved out and inwards, providing a certain sense of privacy that regular chairs lack of. Its flat base gives stability to the chair and a complete panoramic vision. The Egg Chair produces such an optical illusion that makes you sense comfort and relax.
