Arne Jacobsen Swan Chair

The iconic Arne Jacobsen Swan Chair from 1958 is one of the most popular classics of furniture design. Technologically innovative for its time, the chair was purpose built for the lobby and bar area of the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. It complements the busy hotel atmosphere with its elegant, organic shape, which pleases guests with its great comfort and swivel action. There are no straight lines, just fluid curves, which make for the sensuous appeal of the chair’s design. The Swan is one of Arne Jacobsen’s most recognised pieces and has made many film and TV appearances. It is also featured in various design museums worldwide.

To produce the iconic Swan Chair, ItaliaDesigns uses reinforced fibreglass shell, which rests on an aluminium frame. The seat is available in a classic leather, premium leather or cashmere finish in a variety of colours.

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.
