The brain behind the egg chair.
Arne Jacobsen [1902 – 1971] was a Danish architect and furniture designer. He is internationally known for his contributions to architecture and furniture design, especially in the mid-20th century modernist style. He designed many other pieces of furniture including the Ant Chair and The Swan Chair. Arne Jacobsen won the Carlsberg Foundation's special prize in 1957, which enabled him to spend some time experimenting with principles of high-quality cutting-edge design. It is from this period he conceived his most famous chair [the egg chair] from a simple drawing made on an envelope. And that drawing has birthed one of the greatest chairs ever made.
Let’s talk about this masterpiece chair called the ‘Egg Chair’.
Its defining characteristic comes in the form of sides that curve upwards. But, that’s just the least obvious detail. A lot of contemporary chairs have rotating, swiveling, and tilting functions, which are amazing features. Similarly, egg chairs have stable platforms with hydraulic levers for controlling height. They look like typical office chairs and can fill that role quite nicely. Their back support is exceptional, enabling you to relax while working. The base of the chair is a flat stand for stability and a swivel for a 360 scope of vision. Arne’s egg chair as a whole creates a visual sensation that reaches out and draws you into comfort and relief. The Egg Chair was inspired by an earlier piece of furniture also created by Arne, the Swan chair. Legend says that he actually threw this prototype on the floor one day and it bounced back up at him! Amazing, right? That should tell you how much sturdiness the egg chair packs. The Egg Chair was officially launched at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Exhibition in 1958 where it became a huge success. And till today, it’s still very much sought after.

The ergonomic sitting position is ideal for promoting healthy posture while reducing stress on the muscles and joints throughout the body. Comfort is the main benefit and the main selling point of an egg chair. It has high sides and properly cushioned seat for prolonged sitting. Some similar designs such as Ball Chair are spheres that encapsulate the occupant. Indeed, the egg chair is the perfect furniture to curl up in, lounge, read, and muse. The cocooning embrace puts you at ease and soothes your body. If you want nothing less of an elitist level of comfort, opt for chairs with highest-density padding and premium, heavy-duty material.

To make this magic happen, however, you need to choose a color that complements the rest of the interior room or space where you would want it fit into.
Egg chairs are strong and durable.
Egg chairs tend to be both light but very strong. Earlier models were foam-based because wood or steel could not produce that distinct curvy shape desired. When it comes to recent pieces, they are framed with materials such as fiberglass, steel, plastic, and aluminum. Generally, the furnishing contains layers of polyester or leather. Egg chairs built for outdoor use are upholstered in waterproof materials [leatherette and cashmere] and have rust-resistant metal components. You don’t have to worry about harsh weather elements doing some damage on your chair. Most models have considerable load capacity. Their heavy-duty frames provide superior stability and accommodate kids and adults. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing and functional, many egg chairs are also very durable.

Also, because egg chairs tend to lean back more than other types of chairs, they can provide you with a place to cool off once you're done with work. Egg chairs are particularly suited for smaller rooms, living areas or dens; they can also work well in bedrooms as additional seating. If the room has a limited amount of space, it is best to buy a smaller egg chair.

Egg chairs are easy to clean and maintain.
The Egg Chair is made of foam over a metal frame. So, make sure that you simply take care not to scratch or puncture its upholstery material, and avoid using it in a very dusty environment or next to a fireplace. The Egg Chair has adjustable [4-spoke] feet which provide stability. We would also advise you not use your egg chair near any equipment, such as a lawn mower, which could cause punctures or tears. If the Egg chair is too dusty (e.g., in an area where dead leaves or debris accumulate), you can clean it with a vacuum; then make sure that particles of dirt do not scratch the upholstery. You can clean the exterior yourself with with warm water and mild soap (dish-washing liquid soap), using a sponge or soft brush to scrub both sides. You should rinse using clean water, and remove excess water by blotting with paper towels. Ensure that no residue of water remains before allowing the chair to dry completely. We do not recommend using chemical cleaning agents on any part of this chair because they might harm the upholstery. Eggs chairs are not advised to be used in harsh conditions (next to pools) where corrosion is an important issue; they can be moved elsewhere (indoors) when not in use. However, even if the Egg chair is brought into a climate-controlled environment, it will remain on outdoor feet, which will contribute to its corrosion. If the feet become corroded, we recommend having them replaced. Read more here!
