Ægget: design og arkitektur i praksis! The Egg chair is a world known chair designed by Arne Jacobsen, a famous Danish architect and designer who is known for his state of the art creations. In Danish the Egg chair is simply known as the Egg (Ægget).
This piece of classic furniture is a combination of design and architecture. With its unique frame, the Egg chair has developed into being the ambassador of the concept of Danish design. It is close to impossible to say the words ‘egg’ and ‘design’ to Danes without them immediately thinking about the Egg chair. Many Danes associate the chair with their national identity and experience a strong sense of national pride with it. Denmark might not be large by size but is enormous by its reputation for design and enjoys a large degree of general recognition from designers all over the globe. The Danish people embrace simplicity and functionalism in pretty much every sense of their behaviour and way of life, which explains that the idea of having put that principle into design furniture has become iconic for the Dane.
The Egg is for those who appreciate beautiful design as well as comfort and functionalism in their décor. The clean lines of the design illustrate the Scandinavian minimalism which is simple but at the same time sculptural. The chair can stand alone or be a part of the living room where it will with certainty be the most desirable seat in the room. It is possible to get the chair in a variety of colors in order to fulfill a range of décor needs. This chair definitely invites dialogue about design, décor and heritage.
With fame comes exclusivity and the Egg is no exception. Its upper market pricing keeps the enjoyment of this chair limited to high incomes. Luckily, it is possible to acquire reproductions of the famous design piece at much lower and affordable prices. Interior Addict offers exact copies, making it possible to get the classic look of modern design in your home at an affordable price.
