the last chair designed by late danish cabinetmaker frits henningsen has been put back into production by furniture company carl hansen & søn.
the 1952 signature chair features a single curved piece that forms the seat and back. the furniture’s sinuous forms are echoed in a gently bent wooden framework with tapering U-shaped legs. the top of the chair folds in slightly to create winged sections around the sitter.
carl hansen & søn was one of only two manufacturers that produced his furniture, and has been selling his windsor chair for over 70 years. while reviewing the designer’s archives the company came across drawings of the signature chair, which prompted them to put it back into production.
we think it is a great idea and simple like the chair!
