Azure goes to work! Join us for an insider look at some of the world’s best designed workspaces, from multifunctional facilities to super-efficient studios.

As suited to a lazy Sunday morning as its namesake, the Fried Egg chair was so christened for its amorphous form – punctuated by a yolk-shaped seat cushion – when viewed from above. 

The asymmetrical seat is inviting and unusual in equal measure, with a flat, wide armrest that encourages users to get comfortable, legs thrown casually over the side. Originally known as Model 188, the chair was created in 1956 by Danish designer and architect Hans Olsen. Long out of production, the 188 was highly sought-after at auctions for years before Frantz Longhi launched this reproduction under his new brand Warm Nordic.

Longhi’s company offers a counterpoint to the idea of “cool Nordic” style with a collection of comfortable, informal pieces, including contemporary works, as well as several authorized reproductions of forgotten 1950s-era classics.

Boasting a frame in teak and colourful upholstery options – courtesy of Kvadrat – Warm Nordic’s Fried Egg stays true to the original. But if you like your eggs on the fluffy side, sheepskin versions have now been added to the mix. warmnordic.com
