authentic Arne Jacobsen swan chairs

Swan chair by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen

Pair of authentic swan chairs by Arne Jacobsen for Republic of Fritz Hansen. Both in immaculate / same condition.

Designed / launched by whom/when: The Swan chair was designed in 1958 by Danish Architect Arne Jacobsen (1902-71), for the Radisson SAS Airline Hotel in Copenhagen. It was then, and still is, made exclusively by Copenhagen’s Republic of Fritz Hansen.

Inspiration: The graceful curves of the swan’s rounded form were the result of experimentation with cold form polyurethane.

Fabrication: Polyurethane foam core, fibreglass reinforcement, 4 way Star shaped, zinc welded, satin polished aluminium swivel base with rubber glides, satin-chromed tubular steel central support. Kvadrat Fabric – Tundra 2 Col-447

DC Collectors: One owner verified. 8 years old. Minimal use, both look as new. Purchase Invoice provided including Kvadrat fabric details.

Design Consigned Stylist: This pair of Swans, ‘dressed’ in their fashionable quince upholstery, would undoubtedly be the Design stars in any living space whilst providing a sophisticated colour accent.

DC Insider: Warning, there are counterfeit swan copies being produced by unlicensed ‘design thieves’. Don’t get caught out with a fake.

*For sale and priced as a pair.
