product description

The Egg Chair from Fritz Hansen was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen - a project for which Jacobsendesigned everything from the building itself right down to the furniture and bathroom taps. Since then, the Egg Chair has become a design classic - not least because of its commercial popularity. With its instantly recognisable silhouette and star shaped swivel aluminium base the Egg Chair also features a tilt feature and, as an extra option, an automatic return feature which places the chair back in its original position when the sitter gets up to leave.

Manufactured by Fritz Hansen in Denmark the Egg Chair has seen many copies made. Here at Utility we only sell the Fritz Hansen  original.This version is the fully upholstered leather version available in a variety of leather grades. See the Fabric Egg Chair for the coloured upholstered fabric version.

LEATHER TYPES:
Danish hides of the highest quality ensuring the animals have good living conditions so the hides have fewer natural markings.
Basic Leather : A smooth looking type of leather with a fine grain print. Very durable, robust and easy to look after as well as being greaseproof. The leather is soft and pleasant to the touch and offers excellent sitting comfort.
Classic Leather : A durable and very user-friendly type of leather with a slight grain. Resilient to dirt and light exposure, the leather maintains its looks over time.
Elegance Leather : An exquisite type of leather of the finest quality oxhide offering excellent sitting comfort as well as a feeling of exclusivity. An aniline leather, it has an exclusive and natural look and is soft and pleasant to the touch. The leather has a natural surface structure and all natural markings are visible giving the chair a unique sense of character. The leather acquires a beautiful darker patina with use and exposure to sunlight.
White Leather : The finest quality oxhide, soft to the touch and offering excellent sitting comfort. Treated with a light finish, the hide is resilient and easy to look after.
