Product Story

The Egg™ is one of the triumphs of Jacobsen’s total design - a sculptural contrast to the building’s almost exclusively vertical and horizontal surfaces. The Egg sprang from a new technique, which Jacobsen was the first to use; a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery. Experience originality and timeless design with the Egg in fabric and indulge in its sculptural curves that will last for generations.

When Arne Jacobsen in the end of the 1950s designed the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, he also created the Egg™, the Swan™, the Swan Sofa™, the Series 3300™ and the Drop™. With this furniture, Arne Jacobsen wrote history within Danish design worldwide.

  • Adjustable tilt mechanism means that the chair can be adjusted to the weight of the individual user.
  • An innovative, first of its kind technique using a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery.
  • Upholstered in sumptuously soft leather or designer fabric. The limited edition Moss version is upholstered in fabric with a leather piping trim.
  • Also available in other upholstery. To enquire please contact our in store team, or advice line: 0333 121 1915, Option 1.
