Swan Chair 3320
By Arne Jacobsen
Manufactured: Pre 2000
This Swan chair belonged to a private residence in Melbourne and had been sitting in an attic. Upon learning of the Cultivated program, it's owner decided to trade it in to Cultivated to find it a new home.
The Swan chair base is hand polished to remove tarnishing and restore it's bright silver brushed appearance. The shell is reupholstered by our team of experts, which includes hand sewing of almost 3 hours to stitch together the two main pieces.
For more than half of the twentieth century, Arne Jacobsen’s ideas shaped the landscape of Danish design, rippling out from Scandinavia to influence architects and designers around the world. He managed to direct projects ranging from complex buildings like Danmarks NationalBank to detailed challenges as humble as a special teaspoon for his cutlery set, working with a relatively small studio staff driven by an unquenchable need to create.Jacobsen’s creative process centered on his strict consideration of detail. He brought his visions to life for patrons and builders with scrupulous, hand-painted watercolours. In any given year, Jacobsen managed to design what others might be happy to produce in five.
