To celebrate 50 years, Arne Jacobsen’s iconic ’Egg’ chair has been given 50 new looks and is set to hit Brisbane in Design in September.
August 20th, 2008
The much touted ‘Egg’ chair 50th anniversary tour, hosted by Corporate Culture, will come to Brisbane in September 2008.
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.
This amazing display will be shown, as a part of Brisbane in Design, at Hassell’s new Brisbane Studio, in the award winning Hall Chadwick centre from 18 – 20 September 2008. Don’t miss this one.
