maxenrich: Arne Jacobsen’s Series Fritz Hansen Gentofte City Hall, Denmark

The Egg Chair designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the SAS hotel in Copenhagen.

In 1958 Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg chair for the lobby and reception areas in the Royal Hotel, in Copenhagen. The Egg sprang from a new technique, which Jacobsen was the first to use; a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery.

Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was a Danish modernist architect. Probably better known for his furniture design today, but his architecture was just incredible. Actually, I had never heard of him until a few years ago, and now I feel like an idiot for taking so long to discover a true modern genius.
