Arne Jacobsen: Swan Chair

The Swan chair was designed by Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobson in 1958 for the Jaconson-designed Blu (SAS) Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, along with the Egg, the two-seat Swan sofa, and the Series 3300 sofa and chair. Jacobsen partnered with Fritz Hansen to manufacture the Swan chair, and they still produce them in Denmark today.
