Characteristic of the Swan is that it contains no straight lines but only curves. A moulded coherent shell of synthetic material on an aluminium star base. A layer of cold foam covers the shell, which is covered by a choice Kvadrat-fabrics, Comfort or leather upholstery in a wide range of colours. Together with the Egg, the Swan was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the lobby and lounge areas in the exclusive Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The Swan chair is also available as a sofa.

Established in 1997, Cult (formerly Corporate Culture) formed to provide not only exceptional designer furniture, but also a high level of customer service, a combination not yet experienced in the Australian marketplace.

In his endeavours since then, company founder and director Richard Munao has built one of the most comprehensive collections of brand partners in Australia and New Zealand. Cult has grown from its first location in Sydney to now include showrooms in Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland as well as distributors in Canberra, Adelaide and Perth.

In addition to founding Cult, and supporting strong international partners like Fritz Hansen, Carl Hansen & Son, &Tradition, HAY and Gubi, Richard is actively involved in discovering and mentoring emerging Australian and New Zealand design talent. As founder of Cult’s Design Journey Competition, which began in 2004, Richard gives designers throughout Australia and New Zealand the opportunity to have their designs prototyped and put into production.
