No straight lines, organically shaped, pleasant to look at and inviting to sit in - upon it’s creation the Swan Chair started a revolution. It’s design was innovative and modern - a reputation that has not suffered till today. It imitated the shape of a swan thus the name Swan Chair or simply The Swan.
Challenging the norms of design on his time Jacobsen’s Swan Chair was a novelty at the time of its development. It’s organic shapes had not been seen before. The complete lack of straight lines was something completely new. He started a small revolution with his chair. It does not come as a surprise that the Swan Chair is still one of the most popular furnitures on the globe and made its designer famous. For many people the Swan Chair is an essential part of modern interiors and a highly desired must-have.
The Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen created the chair in 1958 for the SAS Hotel in Copenhagen - the first designer hotel in history. The chairs were placed in the Lobby and the restaurant of the hotel. The designer envisioned the whole interior of the hotel as part of the masterplan to unify structures and interiors.
His work space at the time was a small garage in his hometown Klampenborg which was only a couple miles away from Copenhagen. It was there that he draw his first outline of one of the most iconic chairs ever thought of. He also later said that he ruined three cars and six suits in the process.
In 1980s the Copenhagen hotel was remodeled. There is only one room left today that still has the interior that Jacobsen designed including the now famous Swan Chair in blue.
Being a very passionate botanist the natural shaping of the Swan Chair was part of the philosophy and socialization of the danish designer. Looking at the chair in profile you can easily see the wings of a swan on the water that is ready to fly.
Today the Swan Chair is a permanent exhibit in design museums around the world including the famous Museum of Modern Art in New York. Nevertheless the intention behind the chair was to create a piece of furniture that was beautiful and functional at the same time. It was created to be usable in everyday life of as many people as possible.

The Swan Chair is a very versatile piece of furniture. It will fit into your dining area as well as into your living room. It offers an elegant yet comfortable place to relax, read the paper or have a chat.
A self-standing Swan Chair can change a room’s atmosphere but a group of two or three Swan Chairs makes the furniture really come to life.
The Swan chair can be the perfect addition to a sofa or couch. Keep it simple in white leather and add some purity to your interiors. Or add a splash of colour with an orange cashmere chair.
Because of its unique shape the manufacturing process of the chair is challenging. The shell of the chair has to be sewed by hand after the chair has been upholstered. Our manufacturers are handpicked and have years of experience in producing designer furniture.They have improved their production constantly. The Swan Chair will look exactly the same as the original. During production we will also conduct several in depth quality tests to ensure that the chair you will receive it at its best quality.
Our Swan Chair replica is completely identical to the original. The foot is made of brushed aluminium and chrome steel. The upholstery is filled with silk smooth foam.
