Arne Jacobsen designed The Swan Chair as well as the Egg Chair for the lobby and lounge areas at the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, in 1958.  This classic icon of Danish design is offered in the US through design purveyor Stardust Modern Design.  The commission to design every element of the hotel building as well as the furniture was Arne Jacobsen's grandest opportunity to put his theories of integrated design and architecture into practice. In 1958 the Swan Chair was a technologically innovative chair: no straight lines - only curves. A molded shell of synthetic material on an aluminum star swivel base, with a layer of cold foam covering the shell upholstered in fabric or leather. These two original designer chairs originated in Jacobsen’s own garage in his home in Klampenborg, north of Copenhagen and have been in production at Fritz Hansen ever since. The Swan is ideal for lounge and waiting areas as well as the home. It is available in several leather types and fabric upholstery. The base is always star shaped in satin polished aluminum. The Fritz Hansen Swan 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.
