Jacobsen Swan Chair

From the Fritz Hansen website, this is an image of Arne Jacobsen's famous swan chair.  It also comes in a couch shape, and it's got a construction similar to his egg chair (not to be confused with Eero Saarinen's egg chair, which actually looks like a big white spheroid).  See the photo below of Jacobsen, another great Dane in the mid-century international design scene.  He was an architect by trade, having studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Arts.  He died in 1971.
