  • The Egg chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 after he was commissioned to design the hotel building and furniture of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, combining his talent of design and architecture.

    The Egg is an aesthetically unique piece which exudes comfort and style. There is a huge range of fabric and leather options and colours. We have given some suggestions here but if you would like a specific colour or fabric type which is not shown, please let us know.

    The Egg was originally designed for the lobby and reception of the Royal Hotel, however the chair is versatile and is equally suitable in an informal setting. One advantage of this unique shape is the high and curved back of the chair which allows the user a sense of privacy.

    The exceptional comfort of the Egg chair is enhanced by the curved shell which cocoons the body. It is ideal for relaxing and lounging in, especially when paired with the ottoman. Jacobsen used his talent of sculpting when designing the Egg chair and used clay as a mould, until he found the perfect shape for the shell, showing his creative attitude of perfectionism.

    The Egg is formed of a foam inner shell which Jacobsen was the first to use. This layer is situated underneath the upholstery, of which there is a variety of fabric and leather. The base is comprised of satin polished aluminium and is a stylish contrast to the upholstery.

    If you need help choosing colours or require a fabric sample, please let us know, and we'll be happy to help you configure your perfect chair.
    The Jacobsen Egg Chair can also be purchased with Automatic Return, meaning that the chair automatically centres itself after being swivelled or tilted. Please enquire for a shipping quote if you live outside the UK.
