The Swan lounge chair by Fritz Hansen was designed by Arne Jacobsen. Arne Jacobsen designed the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in the late fifties and for the interior, he came up with the Swan lounge chair. The assignment to design both the building and the interior allowed Arne Jacobsen to demonstrate his philosophy. He believed that design and architecture go hand in hand. What stands out is that the hotel is mostly made up of straight horizontal and vertical lines while the Swan Chair adds contrast with its organic shape.
