Take a seat. Relax. Choose a design seat. Moreover: this is one of a 999 capsule collection by Republic of Fritz Hansen.

Its name is “999 EggTM chairs” and is a limited edition of the EggTM with a production run of only 999 chairs (naturally, made with top quality materials).

The inspiration derives from Arne Jacobsen’s use of classic blue color tones that is prominent in his design of the world-renowned Room 606 at the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. (WATCH IN OUR PHOTOGALLERY)

The indigo blue fabric is part of the Canvas series by Kvadrat and has been chosen as a way of celebrating and revisiting Arne Jacobsen’s artistic use of colors in furniture.

A masterpiece of craftsmanship that needs 1200 hand-sewn stitches and a dark brown leather piping. “The piping also emphasizes the iconic, organic lines of Arne Jacobsen’s design“, the designer explaines, “To match the grey undertones of the fabric and the brown leather piping and also give the chair a less formal expression, the base has a burnished look“.

The chair can be combined with its footstool especially produced with the same finishing.

The 999 Egg™ chair will be available on market from December 2014.
