Garden Egg Chair by Peter Ghyczy, 1968

The Garden Egg chair was designed by the Hungarian émigré Peter Ghyczy, who started his working career as chief designer for the Polyurethane factory ‘Elastogran GmbH’ in Lemförde (West Germany). He was responsible for setting up the Design department, developing model polyurethane products. One of his very first designs there was the so called ‘Garden Egg’ chair in 1967/8. The design incorporates features typical of the period: a space age look , UFO-like form, bright coloured plastic laquer, portability and the informal lounging quality of the low seat.
