Arne Jacobsen Leather Egg Chair & Footstool for Fritz Hansen, Double Signed 1965Automaton Vintage Furnishings
You can say that this particular example is the "Bees Knees" of Arne Jacobsen Egg chairs, an early year production (dated 1965) and double signed on both the base and the chair itself - indicating the leather is original and all parts are matching to the chair. The classic and timeless black leather is one of the most sought after and desirable of options - and the condition is superb for its age. We professionally cleaned and conditioned the leather so it is ready to be used immediately. This is the perfect gift for the consummate collector who has it all and wants only the best of the best.
The Egg chair was originally conceptualized for the SAS Royal Copenhagen Hotel, Denmark, which Jacobsen designed in it's entirety from the building itself to the flatware.
The biomorphic Egg chair cradles and supports the human body while allowing for conversation or privacy. This lounge chair stands on a cast aluminum four star base, offering 360° of movement and retains the original manufacturers stamp under the seat and under the base. The chair is paired with a matching Egg footstool, echoing the curves of the piece. The chair and stool are upholstered in the original supple black leather which has been newly conditioned to emphasize the leather's natural vibrancy.
This quintessentially iconic chair and ottoman would be ideal for anyone who appreciates Scandinavian design or wants a bit of "wow factor". It would look apt in a living room, study, family room, den, or screening room and be an excellent choice in a hospitality, retail or corporate location such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium. Perfect gift for the consummate collector who has it all and wants only the best of the best.
