Sculptural simplicity
Designed in 1955 for the Munkegaard School in Denmark, the Tongue is the second great chair design from the celebrated Danish designer and architect Arne Jacobsen. Introduced right after the famous Ant chair, it was later used to furnish the Jacobsen-designed Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.
In 2013, HOWE restored the Tongue. The chair’s aesthetics are exactly as Jacobsen specified, with additional strength provided through precision engineering and the application of high-quality materials, in line with Arne Jacobsen’s own vision for the Tongue. Today’s Tongue is the very essence of structural simplicity – a real design enthusiast’s chair.
