Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg Chair for the lobby and reception areas in the Royal Hotel, in Copenhagen. The commission to design every element of the hotel building as well as the furniture was Arne Jacobsen's grand opportunity to put his theories of integrated design and architecture into practice. The Egg Chair is one of the triumphs of Arne Jacobsen's total design - a sculptural contrast to the building's almost exclusively vertical and horizontal surfaces. The Egg Chair sprang from a new technique, which Arne Jacobsen was the first to use; a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery. Like a sculptor, Arne Jacobsen strove to find the shell's perfect shape in clay at home in his own garage. The Fritz Hansen Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen is considered by many to be one of the best furniture designs of the 20th century. Arne Jacobsen designs can be found at the MoMA New York, The Metroplitan Museum of Art New York and the Design Museum in London.
