Fashion is unique for everyone and trends are ever-changing , but there is one piece of fashion that is loved across the globe - Jeans. Celebrated for its iconic and inescapable appeal,  jeans are no strangers to the limelight, regularly worn by celebrities, captured by the paparazzi and featured by the media across the globe.  Versatile enough to be worn when on duty without being facetious while casual enough for off-duty endeavors, the style good pair of jeans never gets old.

Your “Me” Chair for Every Activity at Home

With all that adoration for denim, it is no wonder this media darling inspired the fabric on the Fritz Hansen’s Choice – a piece designed to commemorate and internalise Arne Jacobsen’s ingenious Egg Chair with a limited edition of only 999 pieces available worldwide.

Upholstered with dark blue canvas by Kvadrat, lined with brown leather piping supported by a burnished leg,  the Egg in dark blue canvas is reminiscent of dark blue denim,  just like your favourite pair of jeans. It is versatile, full of character and treasured as a piece that will remain close to your heart forever.

The Story Behind the Iconic Egg

The Fritz Hansen Egg™ chair reserves a special place in the hearts and minds of those who are privileged enough to appreciate it, drawing adoration from collectors and interior design aficionados alike. It was designed by the late Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the lobby and reception areas in the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. Renowned for his irreplaceable contributions to architectural Functionalism and celebrated for his simple yet effective chair designs, the legendary Danish architect and designer still lives on through his timeless creations.

The late Arne Jacobsen

Even today, after over 60 years since its conception, its popularity is still intact, and its unmistakable silhouette still graces notable interiors across the globe. The owners of Egg chairs hail primarily from the upper echelons of society, from a world where design, heritage, and impeccable craftsmanship takes precedence over functionality.

The chair has graced movie sets, celebrity homes and even seated world leaders.

And while a limited number of brand new Egg chairs have still been produced in recent years, its intrinsic value as a collector’s item has helped it stand the test of time, fueling the demand for second hand units that go under the hammer at prestigious auction houses such as Christie’s and Bacchus Antik.
