Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1950 as one of the first models designed especially for Carl Hansen & Søn.
It has been in production ever since.
Casually classic, the chair derives a sense of lightness from its tapered legs and the dynamic angle of its back legs.
The seat is suspended from the front legs in a construction that is both beautiful and practical, allowing the paper cord weave to continue uninterrupted around the seat.
Approximately 400 m of paper cord is used when making the special weave hiding the knots.
It takes a skilled weaver 8-12 hours to complete the weave.
It is made from solid oak and paper cord.
As a driving force behind 'Danish Modern', Hans J. Wegner helped change the general public's view of furniture in the 1950s and 1960s. His passion for designing chairs, more than 500 of them, is recognized worldwide and reflected in his title 'the Master of the Chair'. He is famous for integrating perfectly executed joints with exquisite shapes and combining them with a constant curiosity for materials and deep respect for wood and its natural characteristics. His designs furnish minimalism with organic and natural softness.
