Fritz Hansen launches Limited Edition Egg Chair.
Danish professional furniture brand Republic of Fritz Hansen introduces a limited edition of the Egg™ with a production run of only 999 chairs.
The inspiration for this limited-edition Egg™ derives from Arne Jacobsen’s use of classic blue colour tones that is so prominent in his designs at the world-renowned SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.
The indigo blue fabric is part of the Canvas series by Kvadrat and has been chosen as a way of celebrating and revisiting Arne Jacobsen’s artistic use of colour in furniture.
To highlight the craftsmanship and the 1,200 hand-sewn stitches that go into the making of each Egg™, the chair has dark brown leather piping. The piping also emphasizes the iconic, organic lines of Arne Jacobsen’s design.
To suit the grey and brown undertones of the fabric, and make the overall appearance of the chair less formal, the wooden base has been made with a burnished look.
The Choice Egg™ is now available to dealers and will be available to the public on December 1, 2014.
