Swan Chair


  • Color
  • Size
Arne Jacobsen designed The Swan™ as well as the Egg™ for the lobby and lounge areas at the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, in 1958. The commission to design every element of the hotel building as well as the furniture was Jacobsen’s grand opportunity to put his theories of integrated design and architecture into practice. In 1958 the Swan was a technologically innovative chair: No straight lines - only curves. A moulded shell of synthetic material on an aluminum star swivel base, with a layer of cold foam covering the shell upholstered in fabric or leather. These two original designer chairs originated in Jacobsen’s own garage in his home in Klampenborg, north of Copenhagen and have been in production at Fritz Hansen ever since.

Polyurethane foam with fiberglass reinforcement, satin chrome swivel center part of welded steel tubing, automatic seat return and a 4-star base in injected molded aluminum.

Presented are the quick ship leather and fabric upholstery options. The chair can be upholstered in a wide variety of colors and fabrics though these combinations have slightly longer lead times. The Swan can additionally come in a higher 18.9" seat height.

Measures: 29.1" W x 26.8" D x 30.3" H, 15.8" seat height

Fritz Hansen Page Logo

Fritz Hansen began in 1872 when enterprising cabinet-maker Fritz Hansen from Nakskov obtained a trade license in Copenhangen.

Early in the 20th century, the forward-looking Christian E. Hansen, son of Fritz Hansen, starts to experiment with steam bending beech. Through a partnership with famed designer Arne Jacobsen, they create the Series 7 Chair; little did they know it would become the most widely sold chair in the world.

Fast forward to the 21st century, and Fritz Hansen has galvanized its stance as a leader in modern furnishings. Through the introduction of the Republic of Fritz Hansen™, they have invited a series of new designers to interpret the design philosophy of the Fritz Hansen brand.

Lekker Home is proud to be the largest Frtiz Hansen showroom in New England. We have access to the entire Fritz Hansen portfolio. So if you don't see what you're looking for or need assistance please contact us at support@lekkerhome.com or 877.7LEKKER (877.753.5537). We're here to help!
