It might be a design classic, but the Egg Chair is pretty much everywhere these days. What you want is some exclusivity – and you’ll certainly get that with the limited edition 50th anniversary Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair from Fritz Hansen.
Designed in 1958 for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen Denmark and previously available in an endless range of colours and finishes, this limited edition anniversary model introduces chocolate brown suede on the back and dark chocolate brown leather on the front, as well as a bronze base that will apparently darken with age.
Just 999 of these are being made, each engraved under the seat cushion with a unique number and a few words about the history and origin of the Egg chair design. it also comes with a limited edition 50th anniversary book about the seat. Expect to see them in ‘selected stores’ from February 1st 2008 – no price given as yet.
