This cool and stylish chair and sofa were created by world famous Danish designer Hans J. Wegner in 1952. However, the production of the furniture stopped sometime in the 70’s. Now, the official manufacturer of many of Wegner’s designs, Carl Hansen & Søn dusted off the old chair, and started manufacturing these beautiful items once again.
The slim armchair features elegant, carved wood handles, rounded wood legs and a beautifully upholstered curved body – a true Scandinavian design in its every detail.
The old-new product was presented at the Milan Furniture Fair this April, and is available from September, 2018. Considering that Wegner designed over 500 furniture during his career, I wouldn’t be surprised, if we saw a few other of his products reappearing in the next few years.
