Design: Radisson Blu’s Egg chair™ exhibition in Riga

After stops inLas Vegas, Nantes and Berlin, Radisson Blu’s Miniature Egg Chair Exhibition has arrived at Radisson Blu Elizabete Hotel in Riga, the Latvian capital. Until the end of August design aficionados can get a close look at 15 personalized miniature recreations of Danish architect Arne Jacobsen’s legendary Egg Chair, which was originally designed for the SAS Royal Hotel (now known as the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Copenhagen).

The exhibition in Riga is the beautiful result of Radisson Blu’s online contest “Design Your Own Icon”, which invited guests and design enthusiasts to personalize the iconic Egg chair in their own special way 55 years after its conception. The 15 miniature creations on show were chosen from overwhelming 66,000 design entries from all over the world and of course include the winning design from Susan Bannister. The UK design talent was awarded a full-size Egg chair complete with her winning design, upholstered using the beautiful woolen fabric from Kvadrat.
