Arne Jacobsen Swan™ Chair in Black Elegance Leather.
Elegance by Sorensen is an exquisite type of leather of the finest quality European oxhide. It has an exclusive and natural look and is soft and pleasant to the touch. Elegance is aniline leather and is chrome tanned but then subsequently vegetable tanned, which gives the leather greater firmness. This type of leather has a natural and raw surface, allowing the leather to breathe and offers excellent sitting comfort as well as a feeling of exclusivity. The leather is full grain, which means that its natural surface structure has been preserved and all natural markings are visible. Natural markings give the piece of furniture a unique sense of character. Elegance leather varies in color from hide to hide and acquires a beautiful, darker patina with use and exposure to sunlight.

Arne Jacobsen designed The Swan Chair as well as the Egg Chair for the lobby and lounge areas at the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, in 1958. The commission to design every element of the hotel building as well as the furniture was Arne Jacobsen's grandest opportunity to put his theories of integrated design and architecture into practice. In 1958 the Swan Chair was a technologically innovative chair: no straight lines - only curves. A molded shell of synthetic material on an aluminum star swivel base, with a layer of cold foam covering the shell upholstered in fabric or leather. These two original designer chairs originated in Jacobsen’s own garage in his home in Klampenborg, north of Copenhagen and have been in production at Fritz Hansen ever since. The Swan is ideal for lounge and waiting areas as well as the home. It is available in several leather types and fabric upholstery. The base is always star shaped in satin polished aluminum. The Fritz Hansen Swan Chair by Arne Jacobsen is considered by many to be one of the best furniture designs of the 20th century. Arne Jacobsen designs can be found at the MoMA New York, The Metroplitan Museum of Art New York and the Design Museum in London.
