History The garden egg chair is a classic among designer furniture made by the hands of Peter Ghyczy in 1968, as head of the design department at Elastogran / Reuter. Peter Ghyczy was experimenting with newly developed synthetic materials and one of the results which drew the most attention was the unique and complex design of the garden egg chair. Peter Ghyczy, 1968 From Suitcase to Egg Chair The original idea was to design a portable piece of design furniture which could be put up and closed without having to take the seating pads out. The first design of the garden egg chair was not egg-shaped at all, but looked more like a suitcase. Only little by little Peter Ghyczy realized that the design was going to be an egg and so the garden egg chair was born. 40 Years Garden Egg Chair In 2008, the garden egg chair reached the land-mark age of 40. This unique design chair has not stood still in its development during these years, as more suitable materials being substituted for previous ones as technology progressed. In the beginning, the garden egg chair was manufactured by the East-German firm VEB-Synthese-Werk in Swarzheide, but in 1998 the garden egg chair found its way home again and the egg chair’s base of production is now Ghyczy Selection BV in the Netherlands. Designer Peter Ghyczy, born in 1940, left his native Hungary in 1956 due to the Hungarian revolution for West-Germany. After completing his secondary education in 1961, he began pursuing his interests by studying sculpture at the Düsseldorf Art Academy followed by studying architecture at Aachen University. From 1968 until 1972 he was head of the design department at Elastogran / Reuter. It was there that he designed a unique design chair, the garden egg chair, in 1968. In 1972, Peter Ghyczy traded again in his country of residence, this time moving to the Netherlands, where he founded the firm Ghyczy Selection BV, and the production of the garden egg chair has been based there since 1998. Perhaps the essence of Peter Ghyczy’s work, and what signifies him as a designer most, are the smooth blends that he manages to create out of seemingly contradictive concepts. The elements of classical Modernism that can be found in his designs demonstrate this clearly, as well as the Art Deco which manages to live alongside a quick, subtly playful style. The garden egg chair is an excellent example of this.
