The Egg chair was designed in 1958 by architect and designer Arne Jacobsen. It was created specifically for the Radisson SAS hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is believed that the Egg Chair was inspired at the time by Eero Saarinen's "Womb Chair". The unique shape of the Egg Chair provides a level of privacy with its "winged design." The Egg Chair originated from Jacobsen's garage, and was originally cast in plaster. Today, the chair has an adjustable tilt feature and is formed with fibreglass, with high-density polyurethane foam padding around the entire chair structure. The front and back are fully upholstered in genuine top-grain Italian leather. Optional matching ottoman available for $199. The Egg Chair is also available in genuine 100% aniline-dyed leather as well as natural cowhide on a custom order basis. Please contact us for pricing information.
