Egg chairs popular among midcentury modern designers

At least five famous midcentury modern designers made chairs that looked like large hard-boiled eggs with a cutout for seating space: Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971), Milo Baughman (1923-2003), Peter Ghyczy (1940-) and Charles Eames (1907-1978) are four of them. But the fifth and most famous was the Ovalia egg chair made in 1968 by Danish designer Henrik Thor-Larsen (1932-).

The chair was made with a round aluminum base and velvet upholstery on a white fiberglass frame. It was made to swivel. Some of the chairs were made with stereo speakers built into the backs.

There are also hundreds of copies selling at low prices. The original Egg chair, sold by New Orleans Action Galleries, brought a bid of $1,000,

The Hyundai Tucson was one of the best-selling crossovers in Canada last year. This compact crossover attracts consumers with a combination of safety, affordability, reliability, and fuel efficiency, but the new 2022 Hyundai Tucson appears as though it will add radical styling to its list of attributes as well.

The Korean automaker released a series of teaser images for the new 2022 Hyundai Tucson this week, revealing portions of its revolutionary exterior styling. The most notable change will happen up front, where the crossover will receive a wide front grille with embedded LED lights, which Hyundai calls “Parametric Hidden Lights.” The lights are integrated into the grille design and appear invisible when they are not illuminated.
