THE EGG CHAIR AND OTTOMAN,

THE EGG CHAIR AND OTTOMAN, BY ARNE JACOBSEN FOR FRITZ HANSEN, EDITION 2008, in hand stitched black leather, on four star swivel base, bearing labels and stamps.

The Egg Chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the SAS Hotel in central Copenhagen. Very much with the wow factor, the relaxed organic interior made this the first Design Hotel of the modern era.

It was presented for the first time at the Formes Scandinaves Exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris in November 1958, as part of Jacobsen’s proposal for the furnishings for the SAS Royal Hotel.

Estimate: €5000 - €7000
