As far as comfort is concerned, it would be difficult to beat the designs and creations of Arne Jacobsen in the interior design industry. And while he was indeed a professional architect, it did not stop him from designing new models for furniture and home equipment which were getting old during that time. One of the more notable works of this Danish expert is the egg chair.
If you look at them closely, egg chairs seem to be an actual egg that was carved in order to become a chair. It is both fascinating and strange to think that someone thought of this in the 1950s. No wonder, this model has gotten the interest of establishment and company owners around the world. And it did not take long until homeowners wished they would be able to get one.
Through the years, here are some of the qualities which made it possible for the egg chair to reach the status where it is now:
High Quality Materials
Back in the day, homeowners were more interested in getting simple chairs and sofas for their homes than luxurious ones such as this. It was the establishment and hotel owners who always had the latest model of furniture to get the attention of visitors and guests. However, as time went by, it was time for homeowners to get the finest models to decorate their houses.
Egg chairs are usually built using stable materials for the chair’s stand and feet, and comfortable fabrics for the actual seat and backrest.
Comfort and Exclusivity
The design of an egg chair provides a sense of exclusivity for the person sitting on it. It is as if no one is allowed to sit on the chair, unlike other models which allow such situations to happen. Aside from that, the curved back provides comfort and encloses the person’s back easily.
When you sit on this particular chair, you would not only feel well-rested, but also privileged for being able to sit on such a fine piece of furniture. Only a few other types of chairs are able to provide this feeling.
Affordability and Durability
Since it was first developed by Jacobsen, both the egg and swan chairs have been known for their durability. Even if you use it on a day to day basis, this particular chair model would still be able to endure, and last for several years. For home and hotel owners, this is certainly one factor that they are looking for in any type of furniture they get.
Innovation certainly does not come easy, and most of the time, it requires change and the disuse of traditional concepts, ideas and models. In spite these grave premise, contemporary designers were still able to develop revolutionary styles which are still enjoyed and used up to this day. Jacobsen was one of these experts who did not listen to the discouraging statements other people threw at him. And look where he is now – he is one of the most celebrated furniture designers of all time.
