Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg chair for the Copenhagen Radisson SAS hotel in 1958. There are very little objects that leave you speechless and if there ever was a chair that did just that, it has to be this one. The design is 50 years old but will never be outdated. The inspiration for The Egg is said to be the Womb chair by Eero Saarinen, which is amazing, but it seems like Jacobsen added a little flow to his creation that makes it so easy on the eye. To commemorate the occasion, Fritz Hansen, the chair manufacturer, is introducing 999 limited edition Golden Egg chairs with a bronze foot. They will be available in selected stores from February 1st. Oh Egg… Someday I’ll get you and we’ll spin around all day.
