Arne Jacobsen’s “Swan Chair” was produced by Fritz Hansen, originally designed alongside another of his most significant works, the Egg Chair, for a the Royal Hotel Copenhagen in 1958.  The chair features a shell of revolutionary-at-the-time technology: cold-cured molded foam over a skeleton of fiberglass, allowing for the perfectly curved planes that make up its clamshell shape.  The design also demands hand-stretched and stitched leather upholstery; this example retains the original black leather.  The four-star aluminum base has black plastic feet and connects to the chair via a polished steel post.  The underside of the chair is marked with the Fritz Hansen label that gives the manufacture date as 1985.  

Condition: Excellent original condition; professionally cleaned and polished with no structural flaws.  Very minor scuffing to the leather at arm seams from normal wear and use.  

Dimensions: 31” width x 26” depth x 31” height; seat height is 15” and arm height is 22”.
