Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg™ for the SAS Royal Hotel, in Copenhagen, Denmark. The commission to design every element of the hotel building as well as the furniture was his grand opportunity to put his theories of integrated design and architecture into practice. The Egg is one of the triumphs of Jacobsen’s total design - a sculptural contrast to the building’s exclusively vertical and horizontal surfaces. The Egg sprang from a new technique, which he was the first to use; a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery. Like a sculptor, Jacobsen strove to find the shell’s perfect shape in clay at home in his own garage. Because of the unique shape, the Egg guarantees a bit of privacy in otherwise open spaces.
