The Swan Sofa™ was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen and reintroduced to Fritz Hansen’s collection in 2000. The design contains no straight lines, making it organic and soft to the eye despite its simplicity and strong architectural appeal.
A contrast to the popular linear furniture of the time, the Swan Sofa has since become a mainstay of contemporary furniture design, boasting an instantly recognisable silhouette. Defined by an organic structure, the sculptural shape emphasises the importance of comfort and relaxation presented in a timeless and well considered design.

The legendary Arne Jacobsen trained as an architect in Copenhagen. His most famous buildings include Arhus Town Hall in Denmark, the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen and St Catherine's College in Oxford England. His experiments into plywood resulted in the Ant chair in 1952.
The work on the SAS Royal Hotel resulted in some of his most outstanding designs, including the Egg and Swan chairs, a stainless steel cutlery set now made by silver manufacturer Georg Jensen and a series of lamps, manufactured by &Tradition and Louis Poulsen. A perfectionist and a master of detail, Jacobsen worked right up to his death in 1971. In central London, his Royal Danish Embassy on Sloane Street was completed only in 1977. He was one of Denmark's most influential 20th-century architects & designers.
