Arne Jacobsen Egg chair for Fritz Hansen

Gorgeous early edition Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen, Denmark 1966. The chair, Model 3316, better known as Egg chair is professionally reupholstered with the original quality of leather which was used in the 1960s. Our upholsterer, a professional who specializes in skillful original reupholstery of Danish Mid-century Modern furniture, upholstered the chair in the traditional way, using new foam and cotton-wool (provided by Fritz Hansen) to restore the inside of the chair. The back is entirely stitched by hand. The natural, raw leather that was used for the reupholstery has not been dyed but has been waxed to protect it. The leather shows some natural irregularities. The waxing procedure gave the chair a gorgeous patine and will become even more beautiful by time. The chair has a four-star swivel base, moulded in one piece, which is marked with manufacturers label and dated 0566. During restoration the inside shell revealed a date stamp: 5-4 66. A true design icon, early edition 1966, with fully restored interior and reupholstered in the original way. In excellent sustainable condition.
