A tribute to the classics: The Swan Chair

This time.... One of my favorite chairs of all times: The Swan by Arne Jacobsen. He designed this beauty in 1958 for the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. It's manufactered by Republic of Fritz Hansen.

Along with the swan Jacobsen also developed the
Egg chair which is equaly amazing... and further furniture which mostly did not get into mass production, like the Drop. The couch of the swan is still in production and i do love it too, its gorge.





The guy surely was a Genius. As a designer, Jacobsen made prototypes for furniture, textiles, wallpaper, silverware etc. Among his most famous designs are The Ant™, Series 7™, The Egg™ and The Swan™ , and the tableware Cylinda-Line

How about this stunning red chair.... a whole new level of awesomeness if you ask me!



They are most certainly timeless beauties and combine modernist ideals with a most inspiring Nordic love of naturalism.



I love this one and the Barcelona Chair.

And you????

So beautiful. Although our home decorating style is more classic than mid-century modern, I would never turn down the chance to have such a beautiful chair!
