50th Anniversary of the Egg Chair by Fritz Hansen

If you have not seen the Egg Chair from Fritz Hansen then you just weren’t paying attention. There probably isn’t a more copied piece of furniture made than Arne Jacobsen’s 1958 icon which was originally developed for the lobby of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The original prototype was developed in the garage of Arne Jacobsen and cast in plaster. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Egg, Fritz Hansen has released a series of 999 numbered chairs available February 1st, and I’m sure they won’t last very long. Today the synthetic shell is padded with cold cured foam and covered in fabric or different types of leather resting on a star shaped aluminum base. This is a great example of a timeless modern design that will look as up to date 50 years from now as it does today. arne jacobsen egg chair by fritz hansen.jpg
