Designers of furniture and other house fixtures are really creative. They try to create concepts and models out of the things they see around them. They might pattern to leaves, they might pattern to animals, they might pattern to human, they might pattern to objects, and many more. Have you seen such a simple yet an amazing and really a kind of a fabulous design? This may prove the saying that, the beauty in its simplicity. This is what describes the egg chair.
The designer of the egg chair is the renowned Arne Jacobsen. He created its first product in the year 1958. The chair was ordered by one of his many clients. This is a hotel business – the hotel Radisson SAS. The manufacturing entity was the famous Fritz Hansen. Fritz Hansen is also branded to be “-Republic- of -Fritz Hansen.-” This is a Danish fixtures and furniture company.
The chair illuminates the classic Jacobsen concepts style of art. This was made from modern and high technology materials.
If you will look at the chair, you can see its resemblance with another design called the womb chair designed and conceptualized by the great Eero Saarinen. This is true, and it is being said that the inspiration was taken from this design. You can see the same traits from it. But with respect and in fairness with Arne’s egg designed chair, this is can be claimed to be more wholesome when it comes to design aspects.
Other Jacobsen’s designs of art that can be compared with his egg design, are his Ant design, his Cigar design, his “7” design, his Swan design, his grand prix designed chair, his Drop design, his Pot design, and his Giraffe design.
Arne’s egg designed chair also comes in a couch model, just like with his Swan designed chair. But based on their inventory, a minimal to limited sets of egg couches were only manufactured. Mostly, these egg couches version are produced for hotel Radisson. They also created egg couches labeled as limited special edition of it. You will be amazed by the price. The price is a staggering Danish kroner four hundred thousand or with an equivalent amount of sixty thousand US Dollars. Are you wondering why they only produce limited editions of the egg couches versions? The reasons are, to promote exclusivity, and the acknowledged intricacy in producing and making such. They were also saying, that it is because of a limitation in its design. The egg couch’s size is said to be huge that the whole cowhide may not be enough to cover at once.
