Mid-Century Cast Aluminum & Leather Upholstered "Egg" Chair, designed by Arne Jacobsen, ca. 1958, produced by Fritz Hansen, Denmark

Lofty says:

“Designed by Arne Jacobsen, a Danish architect, in 1958 for the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark, the egg chair invites one to sit. It promises to envelop and provide comfort. It is organic and sculptural in form. The brown leather on this example gives it a warm, masculine look, perfect for a man cave, or a lounge where waiting would become fun.” - Ursula LeBaron
