Arne Jacobsen's distinguished Egg Footstool is a hero of mid-century design. It is exclusively available at The Conran Shop in Kvadrat's Gentle 2 upholstery and manufactured by Fritz Hansen. The Egg was crafted using new techniques for its time, with Jacobsen being the first to utilise a strong foam inner shell underneath the footstool's upholstery. Using a unique process, Jacobsen tested and prototyped the shape and form of the footstool using clay in his home studio. The footstool sits atop a polished aluminium base and its intricate configuration requires bespoke upholstery. This edition boasts Febrik's new wool blend for Kvadrat, specially sourced from The Netherlands and marks the first time that the footstool is available to purchase in a velvet finish. Conceptualised in 1958 for Jacobsen's architectural endeavour, the Royal Hotel Copenhagen, the footstool's curves offer a sculptural contrast to the building's straight edges and vertical lines. Although renovated in 2018, Jacobsen's legacy is still prevalent in every space and room 606 remains unchanged, true to his original commission.
