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 design that ages with beauty with the Egg in leather and indulge in its sculptural curves that will last for generations.
When Arne Jacobsen in the end of the 1950ies designed the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, he too 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.
The shell is of polyurethane foam with glass fibre reinforcement. The foam for the upholstery and the seat cushion is cold cured polyurethane foam. The shell has an adjustable tilt mechanism, which can be adjusted to the weight of the individual user. The tilt mechanism is made of steel, while the adjustment handle is made of polished stainless steel.
The base consists of a satin polished swivel center part (diameter 38x2 mm) of welded steel tubing and a 4-star base in injection molded aluminium. The leg ferrules are in a black-grey synthetic material.
