SPECIAL EDITION
Egg  60th Anniversary in Pure leather
Variant: Pure leather, nature
Base material: Gold plated aluminium
Width: 86 cm
Depth: 79-95 cm
This 60th anniversary salutes the silhouette of the Egg™, the Swan™ and the Drop™ chairs as well as the design hotel - the SAS Royal Hotel - they were originally created for.

With its soft touch, this aniline pure leather is a visual pleasure telling a story of its original existence. Discover beauty marks such as scars, tiny insect bites and visible necklines - all of which reflects the natural life the leather hides are the remains of. Note that the colour will darken and obtain a more vintage look with time, making every item unique whilst exposed to sunlight and usage. The classic aluminium surface has been plated with gold (23 karat) and the result has an almost satin gloss adding to the exclusive expression of the limited edition design. 

The Egg chair comes in a limited number up to 1958 pcs. Each chair will feature a special 60th anniversary leather engraving, with numbering and is available in stores until 31st December 2018.

FROM PURE TO PERSONAL

Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Egg™ and Swan™ chair we have chosen to work with the most exclusive materials. Not only do the new materials reflect the iconic design itself. They also enhance the personality of each and every chair from head to toe. Overall, the materials carefully selected for this anniversary edition are chosen to make individual statements. Each home inhabiting the anniversary Egg or Swan makes its mark on the materials. The keyword is ‘purity’ because pure materials will become personal with time.

The materials vary from the soft and serene PURE leather, the rich and smooth SERA wool fabric, to a 23 karat gold coated base, all of which will create patina and an expression of their own with time. The serenity of nature was the starting point for the design process of the 60th anniversary. The idea was to unite the renowned heritage with a design that was relevant in time. The result is a design appealing to all senses with a mission to turn pure materials into personal design objects. 

The Egg and Swan chair comes in a limited number up to 1958 pieces each. Each chair will feature a special 60th anniversary leather engraving, with numbering and is available until stock runs out.

A small luxury booklet will be delivered as gift with each purchased Egg chair.

The Drop chair, the KAISER idell floor lamp and the accessories are available in stores until December 31st 2018.
