Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair

Embracing the organic, timeless shape of one of nature’s most proportional creations, Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Egg Chair has harmonised a sensuous, aesthetic form with comfort and functionality. Purpose built for the lobby of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1958, its influential design has celebrated more than 50 years of pioneering the aesthetics of Modernism. The unique retro construction of this aspirational product has established the Egg Chair as a significant contribution to Nordic design heritage. Sheltered for privacy, its cosy structure integrates the surroundings, making it the focal point of any style-led space. Acting on its iconic image, the Egg Chair has been featured in memorable film productions and has a significant role in the 6th book of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

ItaliaDesigns produces the Egg Chair with a handmade cushion and in a range of earthy and bold colours to complement any interior. Cashmere, classic or premium leather covers a sturdy fibreglass and aluminium construction that allows the body a variety of natural movement options.

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.
