Egg Chair in Sydney


September 5th, 2008

The much touted ‘Egg’ chair 50th anniversary tour has hit Sydney, coming to Corporate Culture’s showroom, 21-23 Levey Street Chippendale.

Fritz Hansen has enlisted the help of Israel-born, Denmark-raised artist, Tal R to help mark 50 years of success for Arne Jacobsen’s iconic ‘Egg’ chair.

“The whole point was to make a chair that tells a multitude of stories,” Tal R explains. “So the pieces of cloth had to be full of life. It should look a bit like it was homemade.”

This look was accomplished through the combination of fabrics collected from around the globe. Sourced from Istanbul, Berlin and New York, fabrics were also discovered in second-hand shops in Denmark and a kibbutz in Israel.

The Tal R exhibition will be at Corporate Culture’s Sydney Showroom until September 12. This is a unique opportunity to see the iconic chair in all its glory, don’t miss out!
