The Egg is a chair designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the Radisson SAS hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is manufactured by Republic of Fritz Hansen, the Egg was designed in a typical Jacobsen style, using state-of-the-art material. It is believed to be inspired by Eero Saarinens Womb chair, from which it borrows some traits. Related to the Egg is the Swan chair and, to degree, many of Jacobsens plywood chairs such as 7, the Ant, the Cigar, the Grand Prix-chair, the Pot, the Drop. The Egg was designed as a couch, while the Swan couch is still in production, only a handful of Egg couches have ever been made. A few were made for the Radisson Hotel, and a few years back, the price was quite high — about 400 000 DKR, the equivalent of roughly 75 000 USD. This leaves a very visible stitching down the middle of the couch and this problem can, however, be solved by making the upholstery in fabric rather than leather. According to a New York Times article, the Egg chair has used by McDonalds as part of a high-concept redesign of one of its restaurants in London.
Furthermore, The Egg is in a McDonalds restaurant in Nørrebrogade, among other furniture by Arne Jacobsen and it was used as the diary room chair in the first UK series of Big Brother. The newly renovated Terminal 2 at San Francisco International Airport features the Egg in its boarding area
