In this picture you can really feel how cozy and enveloping the Egg can be (great function) and it also shows off just how sculptural and beautiful its form is.
The Egg Chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the lobby of The Royal SAS Hotel in Copenhagen, which made that 1958 Danish Radisson the most stylish Radisson in history!
Here the Womb Chair is paired with another Saarinen invention: The Tulip Base.
Womb Chair, designed by Eero Saarinen for Knoll in 1948. Many modern icons emerged from the collaboration and friendship between Eero and Florence Knoll. For those of you who only know his name as a popular crossword puzzle answer, Eero was an architect and the son of the architect Eliel Saarinen (another popular crossword answer). Some of Eero's best known projects include the Saint Louis Arch, the TWA Terminal at JFK, and Dulles airport.
PH lights are named after the initials of their designer, Poul Henningsen, who was obsessed with light. Henningsen was always playing with reflection, diffusion, the light spectrum and spreading light equally. This is his famous artichoke light.
This is the PH Artichoke Pendant. The 72 laser-cut leaves are arranged in 12 circular rows to prevent any glare from the light source. The fixture was originally designed for The Langelinie Pavilion, a restaurant in Copenhagen where they still hang
This is the PH 5, which Henningsen designed in 1958. Its basic structure is a cone, three reflecting shades, and it uses a bit of primary red and primary blue to absorb the light spectrums. I'm starting to see why PH was deemed the world's first lighting architect. The simple shape is so deceptive, yet so much thought went into how it would function.
This fixture is the PH Snowball Pendant. This is such an unexpected yet perfect spot for one, tucked off-center into a very small bay window nook. It shows off just how versatile these pendants are, especially when you choose an all-white version. I also love the play between the fixture and the contemporary Philippe Starck Eros chair, mixed in with wood mid-century pieces.
