ARNE JACOBSEN SWAN CHAIR RESTORATION

Vegetable-tanned leather - 2 full hides

This rare Swan Chair from a first or earlier production (swivel base is cast in one piece of aluminum) arrived with considerable damage. As the interior shell was cracked, we needed to add steel bands molded to the curves onto the frontside and backside for reinforcement. The vegetable-tanned leather needed to be stretched and molded to have a smooth surface with no ruching or creasing. This chair was finished with hand-stitching which gives an intentional wave effect adding to the beauty of this chair.
