The Egg Chair is worldwide recognized as a mid-century icon, it was first created by Jacobsen in 1958 for the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, this was the first skyscraper in Denmark. 

This building was a project made by Jacobsen itself, in the project included the outside and inside areas too, so the elements placed in the room made the Egg Chair stand out, being a representation of how you can converge the design and architecture to a same point.
