Artistic use: Fritz Hansen’s Egg chair

Danish furniture brand Republic of Fritz Hansen introduced a limited edition of the Egg, with a production run of only 999 chairs. The inspiration for Egg was derived from Arne Jacobsen’s use of blue color tones that are prominent in his designs at the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The indigo blue fabric is part of the Canvas series by Kvadrat and was chosen as a way of celebrating and revisiting Jacobsen’s artistic use of color in furniture.

To highlight the craftsmanship and the 1,200 hand-sewn stitches that go into the making of each Egg, the chair has dark brown leather piping. The piping also emphasizes the iconic, organic lines of Jacobsen’s design. To suit the grey and brown undertones of the fabric, and make the overall appearance of the chair less formal, the wooden base was made with a burnished look.

Fritz Hansen was founded in 1872 in Denmark.
