In 1958 Arne Jacobsen designed the Swan chair for the lobby and lounge areas in the Royal
Hotel in Copenhagen.
In 1958 the Swan was an innovation it had no straight lines, only curves. A molded shell of
synthetic material on a swivel base in a star shape made ​​of aluminum with a layer of cold foam covering the shell, which in turn was covered with fabric or leather. This original designer chair, thaat was born in Arne Jacobsen’s garage at home in Klampenborg, north of Copenhagen, has been produced by Fritz Hansen ever since.

My own experience: In a previous work, the swan chairs placed in different waiting areas for business meetings. They are quite popular among the waiting guests.

In Danish: I 1958 designede Arne Jacobsen Svane stolen til lobbyen og lounge-områderne i Royal Hotel i København.
I 1958 var Svanen en nyskabelse, den havde ingen lige linjer, kun kurver. En støbt skal af et
syntetisk materiale på en drejefod i stjerneform af aluminium med et lag af koldt skum, som dækkede skallen, og som igen var betrukket med stof eller læder. Denne originale designerstol, der blev født i Arne Jacobsens garage hjemme i Klampenborg nord for København, har været produceret hos Fritz Hansen lige siden.

Mine egne erfaringer: På en tidligere arbejdsplads har de svane stole placeret i forskellige
venteområder for forretningsmøder. De er ganske populære blandt ventende gæster.
