#momentsaremore #häät2019 #häät2020 The lounge chairs of St. George Care Spa were inspired by the sunset. While laying back to relax, few visitors know that the rattan furniture is the work of the iconic Danish designer Arne Jacobsen.
.
Jacobsen, who had just graduated, originally designed the rattan chair for an international art and design exhibition organised in Paris in 1925. The chair has finally found its way to production nearly a century after it was born.
.
Love the design at Hotel St. George? Find Arne Jacobsen's Paris Chair and many other Hotel St. George's furniture in Finnish Design Shop's St. George Collection.
