In 1958, Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg for the lobby and reception areas of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. This organically shaped chair has since become synonymous with Danish furniture design throughout the world. Because of the unique shape, the Egg guarantees a bit of privacy in otherwise public spaces, and the Egg, with or without ottoman, is ideal for lounge and waiting areas as well as the home.
Tabula Rasa's Egg chair is a premium version loyal to the original, complete with auto return mechanism to ensure the silhouette of the Egg curves remains where you want it to be positioned. The shell has an adjustable tilt which can be adjusted to the weight of the individual user.
Materials used are the finest. The shell of the Egg is of polyurethane foam with fiberglass reinforcement. The base consists of a satin polished, welded steel tube and a four star base in injection molded aluminium. The Egg may be upholstered with fabric or leather and is available with an automatic return mechanism.
Please note that the name Arne Jacobsen is only used to describe the characteristics of the goods made to the original design, and not as a trade mark.
