Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen Model 3316 Egg Chairs and FootstoolsAutomaton Vintage Furnishings
These elegant model 3316 "Egg" armchairs were designed by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen in the late 1950s. The Egg chair was originally conceptualized for the SAS Royal Copenhagen Hotel, Denmark, which Jacobsen designed in it's entirety from the building itself to the flatware.
The biomorphic Egg chair cradles and supports the human body while allowing for conversation or privacy. These chairs stand on a cast aluminum four star base, offering 360° of movement and pertain the original manufacturers stamp under each seat. Each chair comes with a matching Egg footstool, echoing its curves. The chairs and stools are upholstered in a bright and cheerful yellow man made mix woven fabric. Fabric is in good condition with no major issues. We can assist in reupholstery, contact us if interested.
These quintessentially iconic chairs and ottomans would be ideal for anyone who appreciates Scandinavian design or wants a bit of "wow factor". They would look apt in a living room, study, family room, den, or screening room and be an excellent choice in a hospitality, retail or corporate location such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium.
