Arne Jacobsen Swan Chair

Before the Swan Chair , Arne Jacobsen’s architecture and designs were shaped by an assumption of materials’ natural ways of resisting. In other words, he could make them go only so far in becoming the structures he desired. With new technologies, however, the old rules no longer applied, and he was able to shape fluid curves and single-piece molded shells. The Swan Chair is now made from polyurethane foam, but at the time, Jacobsen used Styropore® to create its continuous shape. Designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, for which Jacobsen was the architect, the chair permitted guests to spin on its swivel base, thus becoming active participants in the busy hotel atmosphere. A single upholsterer hand-sews the fabric onto the frame of Swan. Original design and licensed manufacture by Republic of Fritz Hansen. Made in Poland.

Arne Jacobsen Danish architect and designer Arne Emil Jacobsen (1902 – 1971) is remembered for his contribution to architectural Functionalism as well as for the worldwide success he enjoyed with simple but effective chair designs. After a spell as an apprentice mason, Jacobsen was admitted to the Architecture School at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, where from 1924 to 1927 he studied under Kay Fisker and Kaj Gottlob, both leading architects and designers. After completing architecture school, he first worked at city architect Poul Holsoe’s architectural practice. In 1929, in collaboration with Flemming Lassen, he won a Danish Architect’s Association competition for designing the “House of the Future” which was built full scale at the subsequent exhibition and helped Jacobsen be recognized as an ultra-modern architect. Later, the Ant and Series 7 chairs, produced in 1952 as a collaboration with Fritz Hansen, propelled both names into furniture history.
