Swan™ Chair

Arne Jacobsen, 1958


Arne Jacobsen designed The Swan™ and the Egg™ for the lobby and lounge areas at the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1958. The commission to design every element of the hotel building, as well as the furniture, was Jacobsen’s grand opportunity to put his theories of integrated design and architecture into practice. In 1958, the Swan was a technologically innovative chair: no straight lines - only curves. These two designer chairs originated in Jacobsen’s own garage in his home in Klampenborg, Copenhagen and have been in production at Fritz Hansen ever since. The Swan is ideal for lounge and waiting areas, as well as the home.
