The Egg Chair, created in 1958 by the designer and sculptor Arne Jacobsen, has not lost its popularity for more than 50 years. It was first introduced when Jacobsen received an order to design a unique reclining lounge armchair for the Royal Hotel in Denmark’s capital, Copenhagen (nowadays Radisson Blu Royal Hotel). The unique smooth shape of the Egg Chair quite organically fit into the surroundings of the lobby and since then is a symbol of the Danish furniture design throughout the world.
