A rare chance to own an original, most iconic Mid-Century egg chair, designed by Arne Jacobsen who was a highly regarded Danish architect.
Designed in the fifties, the Egg Chair is a design classic that has become one of the most recognizable and copied chairs of all time
Arne Jacobson is well known and greatly respected for his visionary Mid-Century chair designs. His creativity expanded from architecture to seating designs. The most recognizable style and perhaps the most popular among modernism fans is his Egg Chair. Original Egg Chairs are extremely valuable to this day.
The shape of the Egg chair was era-defining and Jacobsen is one of the most imitated designers of the last century. He was a Danish design pioneer and the design of the egg chair made him famous.
Crafted by Fritz Hansen with the first chairs having been made in the late 1950's. The Fritz Hansen Republic still manufactures the chairs to this day.
A great addition to any space and superbly comfortable. Kick back and relax while still feeling as though you are on top of the world. This piece today is considered art, it’s so sculptural and artistic, it looks amazing from every angle. Although still valuable in their original condition, we opted to reupholster this chair since the original fabric was torn and we had no choice.
Original Label intact with a bit of wear. The first two digits indicate the month and the last two digits indicate the year of manufacture. This chair is labeled 1263 which relates to being manufactured in December 1963.
This beauty has been reupholstered in new charcoal grey textured fabric from Hertex fabrics. These chairs are very complex to upholster and we had this one done with some online guidance done in the UK and side panels hand-stitched. *All our own extensive research points to an authentic model considering the construction of the base, label and dimensions.
