Design Arne Jacobsen, 1958
Aluminum, foam, upholstery
Made by Fritz Hansen

In 1958, Arne Jacobsen designed the Swan chair for the lobby and lounge areas of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. An elegant and organic shape ideal for lounge and waiting areas as well as the home.

Arne Jacobsen was very productive both as an architect and as a designer. His cooperation with Fritz Hansen dates back to 1934. The Ant and Series 7 chairs, produced in 1952, propelled both Jacobsen and Fritz Hansen's names into furniture history. At the end of the 1950's Arne Jacobsen designed the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, which introduced the Egg, the Swan, the Swan sofa and Series 3300 to the design world. Arne Jacobsen was and is an admired and outstanding designer. His furniture and other design work have become a national and international heritage.

The shell of the swan is a molded synthetic material covered by a layer of cold foam. The swivel base consists of a satin-polished, welded steel tube and a 4-star base in injection molded aluminum. The Swan chair may be upholstered in a wide range of fabric or leather and is also available with an automatic return mechanism.
