Prolific designer Arne Jacobsen is responsible for this, the less well-known Tongue chair which was originally designed in 1955 for Munkeg√•rd School in Denmark.  The Tongue chair was Jacobsen’s second completed chair design, introduced on the heels of the Ant chair and before the now-iconic Swan and Egg.  The chair was used at the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen but disappeared from use save for a brief comeback in the 1980s, after which it became fairly obsolete and extremely rare.  Danish brand Howe has decided to remedy this oversight and are reissuing the chair in the exact original design, the only improvements being some strengthening of the chair's construction and updating the materials and finishes.
