Egg chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the Radisson SAS hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is manufactured by Republic of Fritz Hansen. The Egg was designed in a typical Jacobsen style, using state-of-the-art materials. It is believed to be inspired by Eero Saarinen's Womb Chair, from which it borrows some traits. Related to the Egg is the Swan Chair and, to some degree, many of Jacobsen's plywood chairs such as the 7, the
Ant, the Cigar, the Grand Prix-chair, the Pot, the Drop and the Giraffe.
