New Versions of The Egg Chair

PAST - The first Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen in 1958. This was contributed to the rise of modern design. The original colour was green, but now available in many different patterns & textures.

10 year's later.....
Henrik Thor-Larsen's Ovalia Egg Chair was exhibited at Scandinavian furniture fair and contributed to retro design.

PRESENT - Now designers are taking a whole new approach with the same ideology for inspiration.

Emma Selzer has designed a wooded laminate workstation in the form of an egg. This pod like structure can be suspended and also swivel in a 360.

Philippe Starck has designed the "Play Collection" for Dedon, who are known for their outdoor furniture especially
in regards to their woven polypropylene.

Many styles of hanging lounger, floor lounger, and assembled on the platform where one could rest their drink beside them ;) I believe it's inspiration was a half pitted papaya.

NAMI.... Inspiration. Imagination. Innovation
