Egg™ – Fritz Hansen Choice 2014
The inspiration for this Egg™ derives from Arne Jacobsen’s use of classic bluish colour tones – prominent both in Arne Jacobsen’s diverse colour scale and in the world-renowned Room 606 at the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The indigo blue fabric is part of the Canvas series by Kvadrat, and has been chosen to celebrate and revisit Arne Jacobsen’s thoughts on artistically coloured furniture.
To highlight the craftsmanship and the 1200 hand-sewn stitches that goes into the making of each Egg™, it is equipped with a dark brown leather piping. The idea is to emphasise the iconic, organic lines of Arne Jacobsen’s design. To suit the grey undertones of the fabric, and make the overall appearance of the chair less formal, the base has been made in a burnished look.
We at Fritz Hansen want our furniture to be used and be part of your daily life. We truly believe that this edition of the Egg™ with its informal appearance fulfils that wish, as it has been designed especially to fit in any home or setting of your wishes.
To maintain its exclusivity, only 999 Egg chairs have been produced.
The chair comes with a footstool as well.
