this is the egg chair (looks like a halved surprise egg) I saw yesterday in the nai, netherlands architecture institute, in maastricht.
the chair is designed by english architects alison and peter smithsons in 1956 and I couldn’t find it the 1000 chairs book by taschen. even google is almost not giving any informations about it. so, here it is – the egg chair – arne jacobsen has designed the famous version;-) – which colour reminds me of the yolk of the egg in my breakfast.
the plastic egg chair was designed for the smithsons
‘house of the future’, 1956 – an visionary ‘model home’
