Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair with Ottoman

Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Egg Chair with Ottoman is a unique piece that effortlessly combines comfort and functionality with an artistic design.

Jacobsen constructed a design ethic of combining modernist ideals with an intense Nordic love of naturalism, traits that are ingrained throughout his inspired composition. Immortalised in film and television and created for the Royal Hotel in Jacobsen’s native Copenhagen, the inherent characteristics of an egg are evident throughout the piece, including a curved backrest.

ItaliaDesigns produces the Egg Chair with Ottoman in outstanding quality, complete with a hand-made cushion and upholstery available in a range of emotive colours. A choice of cashmere, classic leather or premium leather covers a resolute fibreglass and aluminium construction, creating a natural comfort experience throughout this legendary composition.

About the Designer

Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen

A career encapsulated by flirting between controversy and art nouveaux genius, Arne Jacobsen established global infamy by combining modernist ideals with a Nordic love of naturalism. Born in Copenhagen in 1902, Jacobsen secured an education at the Royal Academy of Arts in his homeland, drawing all future inspiration from the study of leading architects and designers of that era.

Despite elements of opposition towards avant-garde principals and idiosyncrasies within his architecture, Jacobsen is most decorated for his work within interior, furniture, textile and porcelain design - praised for a clear styling and the successful combination of form and function. There can be no greater compliment paid than the sheer fact that some of the Dane’s work received classic status during his lifetime, reaching cinematic acclaim with the use of his pieces in Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Arne Jacobsen’s use of propelled curves in a minimalist fashion earned his furniture countless awards, including the 1968 International Design Award from the American Institute of Interior Designers, the 1967 ID-prize from the Danish Society of Industrial Design and the 1957 Milan XI Triennale in Italy.
