“I wanted to make something that could only be made by us... something typically Danish.”- Hans Wegner
Wegner was one of the first to employ ergonomics in his designs. His Round Chair is known as “ The Chair” and is often referred to as the most beautiful chair in the world. Crescent-shaped arms made from a single piece of teak, mortise-and-tension joints, and a continuous semicircle of wood.
This is minimalism perfectly expressed. All four chairs retain their original labels. Made by Johannes Hansen and imported by Knoll.
“A chair,” according to Danish designer Hans Wegner, “is to have no backside. It should be beautiful from all angles.” This principle guided Wegner in the design of every one of the 500 chairs he developed during his lifetime—100 of which were ultimately put into production. But of all these, just one, his 1949 Round Chair, went on to earn the internationally recognized nickname of “The Chair,” an honor shared by no other design before or since.
