Fritz Hansen Egg Chair - From Pure To Personal

Fritz Hansen Egg Chair 60th Anniversary Edition. A design classic that promises to only get better with time.

Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the design of Arne Jacobsen's Egg Chair and Swan Chair Fritz Hansen have released a special edition of each chair, available now in some of the most exclusive materials. Not only do these materials reflect the now iconic silhouettes but they also enhance the personality of each lounge chair from head-to-toe too. The key word that comes to mind when discussing the chosen materials is "purity" and these pure materials are chosen specifically because they will become personal to each chair (and its user) over time.

Each material, of which there is a soft and serene PURE leather, a rich and smooth SERA wool fabric and 23 Karat old coated base, will create a beautiful patina and expression of their own as time goes by.The serenity of nature was the starting point for the design process of the 60th anniversary. The idea was to unite the renowned heritage with a design that was relevant in time. The result is a design appealing to all senses with a mission to turn pure materials into personal design objects.

About the Egg & Swan Chairs

The instantly recognisable chair designs were the brainchild of renowned architect and designer Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for his SAS Royal Hotel project in Copenhagen. Since the 1950s, the chairs have been produced by Danish design brand Republic of Fritz Hansen. Crafted by specialists at their Denmark factory, the leather Egg Chair is stitched by hand, with an impressive 1100 stitches required to add the two large leather hides needed to cover the chair. 

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of this design classic, Fritz Hansen have released a limited number (1,958 to mark the year of design) of extra special Egg & Swan Chairs featuring exclusive materials that enhance the personality of each one from head to toe.

A small luxury booklet will be delivered as gift with each purchased Egg chair.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
