The Swan Chair designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 is a beautiful chair; combining an overwhelmingly comfortable form with the creative flare of one of the world’s most prominent leaders in design and architecture, a true master of the arts. Arne Jacobsen designed the Swan chair for the lobby and reception areas in the Royal Hotel, in Copenhagen. 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. The Swan chair is one of the triumphs of Jacobsen’s total design – a sculptural contrast to the building’s almost exclusively vertical and horizontal surfaces. The Swan chair sprang from a new technique, which Jacobsen was the first to use; a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery. Like a sculptor, Jacobsen strove to find the shell’s perfect shape in clay at home in his own garage. Because of the unique shape, the Swan guarantees a bit of privacy in otherwise public spaces and the Swan chair – with or without footstool – is ideal for lounge and waiting areas as well as the home.
