“The primary factor is proportions.”
The Swan chair was designed, along with the Swan Sofa and Egg Chair, for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. Jacobson built the original in his garage.
Jacobsen wanted to design feminine, sculptural shapes in contrast to the Hotel’s rigid lines. The Swan chair blossoms like a flower, smooth and rounded like a bud.
In 2008, 1958 limited edition Swan chairs were released in celebration of the chair’s 50-year anniversary. The number is a nod to the year in which it was first released. In 2018, a special edition Swan chair was released in a warm natural coloured leather with a 23-karat gold-coated base.

Leather: 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.
Fabric upholstery: Regular cleaning is important in order to keep the fabric looking its best and will prolong its life. Dust and dirt wear down the fabric and also reduce its dirt-retardant properties. Vacuum frequently, ideally every other week, at half power. Wipe the fabric with a dry or moist (but not soaking) cloth. May also be vacuum cleaned with a soft brush. Keep fabric away from direct sunlight and extreme heat.
Stain removal: Act quickly. Remove any liquids with an absorbent napkin or cloth. Gently scrape away any residue with a spoon. Vacuum away any loose particles. Remove non-greasy stains by carefully dabbing with a lint-free cloth or sponge wrung out in warm water. Edge marks can be avoided by dabbing gently in circular motions towards the centre of the stain with a clean lint-free cloth. Remove greasy stains by using appropriate detergents or solvents. Always test stain-removal agents on an inconspicuous area first to see if there is any effect on the fabric.
Allow the fabric to dry fully before resuming use. Low-intensity use of a hairdryer may avoid enduring edge marks.
Metal: 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.
