“The primary factor is proportions.”
Jacobsen’s creations, including the Egg Chair, have been showcased in numerous museums across the globe including The Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art in Denver, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
The famed comedian and talk show host, Ellen Degeneres, also chose the Egg Chair as part of her exhibition at the Smithsonian Design Museum in New York. This exhibition features rare and distinctive objects that Ellen collected during her travels.
Jacobsen’s design captured not only the attention of art and design connoisseurs worldwide, but filmmakers too. The chair has been seen in a myriad cinematic productions such as Austin Powers, Zoolander, Ugly Betty, Lucky Number Sleven, and A Space Odyssey.

Occasionally remove dust from the leather with a damp, lint-free cloth. Small soiled spots can be gently removed with a colourless eraser. Liquid spills should be immediately dabbed dry and wiped off with a little water. Once a year, the leather should be treated with a special leather care product, but never with any type of strong cleansing agent. Only use quality leather products which do not leave residue. Oily build-up on the leather makes it susceptible to bacteria, which can destroy the leather. Clean the stitching with a soft-bristle brush.
Make sure that your leather furniture is not positioned close to heat sources, so that it does not dry out and become brittle. In addition, we recommend that leather surfaces are not permanently exposed to intense sunlight, because direct sunlight over an extended time period can diminish the quality of the leather.
Leather can be treated occasionally with conditioners to keep it in its original state. Liquid spills should be blotted up immediately, not wiped. For daily cleaning, dust leather with a soft cloth.
Do not use an abrasive material on the metal. Clean the item with a mild detergent and water. Dilute in the mild detergent in water so it is not too harsh on the metal. You can dip a soft-bristled toothbrush in the solution or a non-abrasive pad and use it to scrub off any residue or dirt on the item. Scrub the item with a soft toothbrush or a non-abrasive pad. Dry any residual moisture with a soft, dry cloth.
